Is book writing more than just sitting still with a pen in hand? Our guest will prove it to be the case. Versatile workshop and ironclad consistency – the traits marking one of the most popular writers of fantasy fiction in Poland. He wrote continuation of the story for Pan Samochodzik, which has been accompanying us since our early age, and Jakub Wędrowycz, the beloved Polish protagonist. Our Convention wouldn’t be the same without those two!
Andrzej Pilipiuk is a four-time winner of the Nautilius award, ten-times nominee and one-time winner of the Janusz A. Zajdel Award, and 2006 Ace of EMPiK – one of the top three best-selling authors that year.
In his last novel, Po drugiej stronie książki (The other side of a book), the author shares events from his past through the lens of his imperfect memory. Many call the book a personal story, intimate even. The author calls out topics that some readers may not have wanted to learn.
Po drugiej stronie książki is a book about history, archeology, travels, the times of the Polish People’s Republic and its shady cities’ nooks and corners, or the everyday routine of life in the country. Mostly though, it tells the story of Pilipiuk himself, sharing the strong connection between his life experience and his works – which surprisingly include his fantasy novels.
