    Don't blame the publisher- Brill produces products for academic institutions and most of their work is top notch. It is offered here at very good prices in comparison to their list price, plus searchable and more easily utilized in the software. As to the one star rating below? Comparing and open access resource to this is way off base.

    I use LOGOS extensively every single day. I am thankful for such resources as this. It may be over priced (I don't know), however I am buying it so I can use it with the ease of LOGOS.

    Can we have some sample pages please?

    The 2-volume Dictionary of North-West Semitic Inscriptions is a must for any scholar in the field, but I will never purchase anything at this exorbitant price. Why should I, when, for example, I downloaded the entire Chicago Assyrian Dictionary from the Oriental Institute free of charge?

    I KNEW THIS WAS BRILL AS SOON AS I SAW THE PRICE!!! These people are out of their minds! Everything they publish is about 500% more than exorbitant. I will NEVER buy anything they offer. What a joke. I wish authors would stop using them.
