Szpony i kły (English unofficial translation Claws and Fangs) is a collection of award-winning short stories from the contest organized by Nowa Fantastyka magazine on the occasion of the 30st anniversary of publishing The Witcher short story.

Content[edit | edit source]

The foreword titled Dziedzictwo Białego Wilka (The Legacy of the White Wolf) was written by Marcin Zwierzchowski and a note on the last page of the cover by Andrzej Sapkowski himself.

The collection consists of the following short stories:

  • Piotr Jedliński – Kres cudów
  • Beatrycze Nowicka – Krew na śniegu. Apokryf Koral
  • Sobiesław Kolanowski – Ironia losu
  • Nadia Gasik – Co dwie głowy...
  • Katarzyna Gielicz – Skala powinności
  • Barbara Szeląg – Bez wzajemności
  • Przemysław Gul – Lekcja samotności
  • Tomasz Zliczewski – Nie będzie śladu
  • Andrzej W. Sawicki – Dziewczyna, która nigdy nie płakała
  • Michał Smyk – Ballada o Kwiatuszku
  • Jacek Wróbel – Szpony i kły

Reception[edit | edit source]

SuperNOWA, Polish publisher, faced backslash in press and social media due to misleading decision of using Sapkowski's surname in the same way as on Sapkowski's own novels.

The stories met varying receptions. Andrzej Sapkowski said he had read them with pleasure and some of the authors could become great writers; he admitted reading only some of the stories though.[1]
