The setting is mostly historical, with some historical characters and descriptions of particular locations. Fantasy elements include occasional magical feats, artifacts, and non-human characters. The German word Narrenturm means The Tower of Fools, a tower in which, in Middle Ages, people suffering from rare mental diseases were isolated.
The Tower of Fools has been translated to Czech, Slovak, Russian, German, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Hungarian and Spanish. Rights to the English translation of the trilogy have been acquired, and it has been published in 2020 by Orbit in the US, and Gollancz in the UK, with the translator being David French, translator of several Sapkowski's Witcher books.
