This probably has a limited audience, but it's slowly progressing. More so than some more obvious candidates.

I hope for it, since it kind of brackets iron-age Israel .... Nuzi texts, Egypt, Neo-Babylonia, late-Bronze Hittites, and so forth. A nice addition to our ancient writings resources already available, and often referenced.

Basically about $20 per volume for a nice rounded out grouping.

I made the mistake of delaying on the semitic languages collection sale. So, this looks like a nice replacement.

Ordered that back in 2014 and it's looking like it will never make it.

I have also been in on this for over two years.  I wish that once Logos offers a series, then any additional volumes or updates would be automatically produced without being required to go through Pre-pub.  For example, if I buy a commentary set that is missing four volumes, then it would seem that there is an unspoken agreement that I will eventually be able to complete the set when the new volumes are available.  At this point I have spent a fair amount on this set, and I would like to see it complete.

When it comes down to it, I wish all primary source material would go into production automatically after a set time on pre-pub.

It also looks like James P. Allen has substantially revised and updated his volume on The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts (2nd ed.), which didn't make it into Writings from the Ancient World Upgrade (10 vols.). These are excellent editions. I wouldn't mind, however, if more and more ancient text collections went fully digital, especially where advances in archaeology and technology are opening up both new and old source material.
