Top five also makes Andrzej Sapkowski with "Witcher." Anyone heard of it?
Well, sure I did. No wonder, considering where I come from...
Sapkowski is... considered very good indeed. I've read some of his short stories years ago and I'd agree that he's a good writer, although a bit on the cynical side. That put me off a little... But that's just me. I'd say, give him a try, Jouzi.
Aside from Sapkowski? Personally, I can't recommend Robin Hobb enough. I've read her Liveships
trilogy and Tawny Man
trilogy and was very impressed.
Oh, and I speaking of Polish writers: I don't know if there were any Czech or English editions of anything by Feliks W. Kres... but, if they exist, hunt them down. I read one book his, Piekło i szpada
(which would translate roughly to The Hell and the Sword
) and it was fantastic. An amazing blend of fantasy and horror.
