Amazon.com noticeably made a big screw up when they decided to release Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher series stateside. While they did a decent enough translation of the text, taking cues from the video game, they made the mistake of assuming the anthologies were not actually part of the saga. They released the first anthology, The Last Wish, but then skipped to the third book in the series The Blood of Elves because they didn't realize its story picks up directly after the events of this book. As such, The Blood of Elves confused a lot of fans who read it as it refers to events and characters we haven't read about.
