Wędrowycz debuted in a short story published in 1996, and has been featured in dozens of short stories and several book anthologies. With time, Wędrowycz became the most easily recognizable characters of Pilipiuk's speculative fiction and humorous prose, as well as one of the icons of modern Polish pop culture.
Many official illustrations of Wędrowycz, particularly for the books, have been done by Polish illustrator Andrzej Łaski [pl].
a horrendous old boozer, a village exorcist, bootlegger and poacher, who scares others off with his looks, smell, and manners – or rather lack thereof. ... Due to some supernatural abilities, he also exterminates ghosts, vampires, zombies, and any other kinds of "paranormal vermin". In his spare time, he lifts spells, undoes curses, sometimes even saving humanity.
