Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt of Rivia turned him into a bestselling writer and he is now one of Poland’s most famous and successful authors, selling more in his own country than Stephen King or Michael Crichton.



Gillian Redfearn is the Deputy Publishing Director. She joined the team in 2004 and isn't sure she's left the office since. She loves travel, challenges and good fantasy novels, hates being bored and is largely ambivalent about chocolate. When not working in the Gollancz Dungeons she reads, practises archery, knits, conducts a never-ending war against her garden and doesn't spend enough time in the gym . . .

  • The Witcher Reader

    So basically, at this rate, Gollancz will be done publishing the English editions of Sapkowski’s The Witcher franchise sometime in 2040?

  • Wiedzmin

    Of interest – when is the planned date for The Time Of Contempt? I believe I saw a december 27th on here a while back and then it was taken off? (the August date is long gone)

    Also, I have noticed another company (orbit books) will be publishing on dec12th – how is this going to be working?
