This looks pretty good. I checked it on goodreads and sure looks like it fits the bill. Thanks.

Thanks a lot, I was planning to read it (some of my friends read it), but haven't really checked the synopsis till now and its a perfect fit.

I checked this out, its not my thing, I like originals always much better.

I can't remember there being any humour in this. It's pretty grim.
Hmmm....it has pretty good rating on goodreads but kinda sketchy synopsis. I may give it a go

I would think Richard Kadrey's "Sandman Slim" books would be right up any Supernatural fan's alley, but there is a bit of gallows humor and snark that comes with it.
It is. But that is not its undertone or main theme. Sometimes, there is a funny scene/joke to break up the tension and that suits me just fine in TV show. BUT, I dont like such things in the books I read. Clearer now?
I will give it a go to test it. I might like it.

Little I think. But then again I'm on season 2 only.
Its pretty good so far. Give it a try.

It is Geralt
I have read them. Though it doesnt have anything to do with my request, glad to stumble upon another Sapkowski fan. Though I wonder where did you get the information that its due in february 2013? Bookdepository says its due in June 2013.

The darker the better in my case
But somehow this didnt catch me or engage me reading the short synopsis. But
