New Andrzej Sapkowski Trilogy To Be Released in English

Tower of Fools Andrzej Sapkowski

Great news for Andrzej Sapkowski fans, or for anyone that enjoys fantasy based on real history!

If Sapkowski’s name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because he’s the genius behind The WitcherI recently read the first book in The Witcher series, The Last Wish, and I loved it. I’m stoked for this new-to-us fantasy series.

Tower of Fools is planned to be released on October 27, 2020. Here’s the official blurb from Orbit:

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.

The 2019 Man Booker International Longlist

The longlist for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize was released today, and there are some great titles to add to your TBR. Before we get into those books though, I want to point out a few cool things about this year’s list.

First, only two of these novels are from large conglomerate publishing houses; the rest are from independent publishers. I love supporting small publishers and their authors, so I was thrilled to see them represented in the longlist.

Second, over half of the list is made up of female authors – eight in total. It really seems as though women writers are getting equal footing in world literature, so it made me happy to see that they make up the bulk of this list.

Now, let’s get right into the books!
