There's an interesting article here about a very ambitious project being undertaken by Overlook Press: "The Russian Library, a colossal 125 volume series of translated fiction, poetry and drama to be published over the next ten years."

The publisher Peter Mayer says, "Many of these books are unknown, but they deserve translation."

That's exciting in and of itself.

This good news leaves me a little confused. Overlook already operates an imprint called Ardis that publishes Russian literature -- close to 100 titles so far, I think. I wonder if this new project will be separate from Ardis, or if the new books will be issued under the Ardis name. Regardless, it'll be great to get some new books done into English and I won't really care how they go about doing it.
