    Summary

    It’s a tradition the three of them hold. Whenever one of them finds a book of the right kind, he brings it back to Kaer Morhen to share with the others. They keep the books on a shelf in the library that they inexpertly installed themselves.

    Eskel drags a chair up to form their little semicircle in front of the library fire. Lambert opens the first bottle of krupnikas.

    ‘Well?’ Lambert says. ‘Either of you find a good one this year?’

    ‘Feast your eyes, lads,’ says Eskel with relish, ‘on this.’

    He waves an octavo at them.

    ‘Picked it up in Redania,’ he says. ‘Meant to be very spicy.’

    He waggles his eyebrows, and Geralt grins.

    Jaskier is a romance novelist, and Geralt finds out.

    Summary

    Geralt unties Roach from the post, and is about to leave when there’s the sound of an altercation behind him. He turns to see two guards dragging a third man between them. The man is wearing brightly coloured clothes and struggling, not seriously, more like he’s aware that in such circumstances struggling is expected. The guards approach Geralt and drop their charge to his knees in front of him.

    “Ow,” the prisoner says. Geralt recognises the bard from the tavern: a little more dishevelled, his face not improved by two black eyes and a split lip.

    “This one claims he’s a friend of yours,” one of the guards says. “Caught him sniffing around the treasury but he says he knows you. Says you’ll vouch for him.”

    Geralt looks down at the bard, who winks at him, then winces.

    How the witcher got his bard; or, the history of a relationship in ten rescues.

    Summary

    When Geralt of Rivia and Emiel Regis Rohellec Terzieff-Godefroy meet, neither man knows that the course of his life will be radically altered because of the other. After the mysterious barber-surgeon saves his life, the witcher is intrigued by Regis. But when Geralt discovers Regis’ secret, he feels hurt and betrayed by the higher vampire, as well as angry. He runs away. But it is this initial meeting which makes the witcher ask: “Does being a monster necessitate evilness? Or do evil circumstances necessitate monstrosity?”

    After a chance meeting years later, both the witcher and the higher vampire have changed— and both still feel drawn to the other in some way. Furthermore, both Geralt and Regis want to start over. The only question is: Can they manage to make it work this time around?

    Or: is a person’s given role really fixed, and must monsters and humans (or witchers) always be enemies?
