 Excerpt from Ores 1999 by Stan Nicholls

Geralt, steadying the carafe's pewter stopper with his
thumb, poured himself some wine, took a sip and
leaned back into his chair.
He was watching the monster with a smile. An exceptionally ugly one.
“Yeeees,” said Nivellen slowly, digging at the corner of his jaws with his
claw. “One has to admit you can answer questions without using many words.
It'll be interesting to see how you manage the next one. Who paid you to deal
with me?”
“No one. I’m here by accident.”
“You're not lying, by any chance?”
“I’m not in the habit of lying.”
“And what are you in the habit of doing? I’ve heard about witchers—they
abduct tiny children whom they feed with magic herbs. The ones who survive
become witchers themselves, sorcerers with inhuman powers. They're taught to
kill, and all human feelings and reactions are trained out of them. They're turned
into monsters in order to kill other monsters. I’ve heard it said it's high time
someone started hunting witchers, as there are fewer and fewer monsters and
more and more witchers. Do have some partridge before it's completely cold.”
Nivellen took the partridge from the dish, put it between his jaws and
crunched it like a piece of toast, bones cracking as they were crushed between
his teeth.
“Why don't you say anything?” he asked indistinctly, swallowing. “How much
of the rumors about you witchers is true?”
“Practically nothing.”
“And what's a lie?”
“That there are fewer and fewer monsters.”
