Wiedźmin (English: The Witcher) is the first book of Andrzej Sapkowski to be published in Poland (published by Reporter in 1990). All of the short stories featuring witcherGeralt of Rivia contained in this book were later published (with three additional stories added) in The Last Wish collection that replaced Wiedźmin as the first part of the Witcher series and made this book obsolete. It is currently out of print. Aside from the witcher stories, this book also contains "Droga, z której się nie wraca", a story about Geralt's mother, Visenna, which takes place decades before the Witcher stories. This story, while not included in The Last Wish, was later published in the Coś się kończy, coś się zaczyna collection.
