Waiting on Wednesday 03/25/20

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

The Tower of Fools by Andrzej Sapkowski (October 27, 2020 by Orbit Books)

Originally published in 2002 in its original Polish, The Tower of Fools has since been translated into many other languages but finally the official English edition with translation by David French (who also translated several of the author’s Witcher books) will be out later this fall. I’m a huge fan of the Witcher series, and that’s made me curious to check out Sapkowski writing about a whole new world with new characters in the Hussite Trilogy.

“Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, created an international phenomenon with his New York Times bestselling Witcher series. Now, he introduces readers to a new world, and a new hero–a young magician and healer on an epic journey across a war-torn land.

When a thoughtless indiscretion finds Reinmar of Bielau caught in the crosshairs of powerful noble family, he is forced to flee his home.

But once he passes beyond the city walls, he finds that there are dangers ahead as well as behind. Pursued by dark forces both human and mystic, it’ll take all his wits, his skill in healing, and his knowledge of magic to survive.”

  1. I think I’ll be doing good if I ever get through the Witcher series. However, I’m glad this one is finally getting translated for you. Enjoy!

  2. Wow, that’s a long, strange journey to English translation. I’ll admit, I’ve yet to read or watch The Witcher, so my excitement is tempered. LOL
