Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland.

This week wanted to introduce you to one of our favourite series. With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt out in shops and Sword of Destiny in bookshops from tomorrow, there’s no better time to discover Peter Kenny’s superb narration of Andrzej Sapkowski’s classic novels of Geralt of Riva – the original Witcher books. The Last Wish, Blood of Elves, Time of Contempt and Baptism of Fire are all available from More

After a long delay, Gollancz is very pleased to have published Time of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski. We’re sorry for the wait, which was out of our hands, but thrilled to get a chance to reintroduce readers to the world of Geralt, the Witcher.
