    I suggested it in the community and glad to find it here. Been waiting for this since it's release in Kindle. Logos would be totally remiss to skip on the best English translation of all time.

    I especially agree that Logos NEEDS to publish his 3-volume translation of the Hebrew Bible

    I really, REALLY want to see his entire translation of the Hebrew Bible on Logos! But you may as well include all his works if you can.

    Gabe, can you update your comment to focus on his Hebrew Bible translation as detailed below? I would not want this to be missed.

    I just noticed that Robert Alter's full translation of the Hebrew Bible with commentary will be released by Norton in December 2018.

    A landmark event: the complete Hebrew Bible in the award-winning translation that delivers the stunning literary power of the original.

    A masterpiece of deep learning and fine sensibility, Robert Alter’s translation of the Hebrew Bible, now complete, reanimates one of the formative works of our culture. Capturing its brilliantly compact poetry and finely wrought, purposeful prose, Alter renews the Old Testament as a source of literary power and spiritual inspiration. From the family frictions of Genesis and King David’s flawed humanity to the serene wisdom of Psalms and Job’s incendiary questioning of God’s ways, these magnificent works of world literature resonate with a startling immediacy. Featuring Alter’s generous commentary, which quietly alerts readers to the literary and historical dimensions of the text, this is the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible.

    Forthcoming December 2018
    ISBN 978-0-393-29249-7
    This would be phenomenal to get in Logos, and I do hope that talks have already started to facilitate this process.
