The Witcher Universe

The Witcher, or Polish: Wiedźmin, by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski is a series of fantasy short stories (collected in two books, except for two stories) and five novels about the witcher Geralt of Rivia. In Sapkowski's books, witchers are monster-hunters who receive special training and have their bodies modified at an early age to provide them with supernatural abilities so they can cope with dangerous monsters. The books have been adapted into a movie and television series, a video game series, and a graphic novel series. The novel series (excluding the short stories) is also called the Witcher Saga (Polish: Saga o Wiedźminie). The Witcher short stories and novels have been translated into several languages. Regarding English translations of the series, The Last Wish and Blood of the Elves book have been officially translated into English, while the other books are freely available at the Witcher Forum Community Fan Translations.
