So, you know I want Robert Alter's books, ALL OF THEM. And have for years. 

Besides his completed Hebrew Bible translation and commentary, he has a new book out on Bible translation, which I would also love to see in Logos.

I've just finished his book on Bible Translation. It's certainly not a technical manual but a popular book, and informed by a literary sensibility matched by very few translators. 

Can we PLEASE get some Alter in Logos? There seems to be plenty of demand.

Alter's books have received the 6th most votes in uservoice. Please go vote and comment, and let Logos know we'd like to put our money where our votes are.
