Carl Sandler Berkowitz tipped me off to the existence of this book shortly after it was published, and I deeply appreciate the tip. This scholarly paperback brings the sixty-second language to this collection. After an introduction, there are two chapters on two tablets found at Bo?azköy, Turkey in 1983 and 1985. A philological overview of the tablets follows, succeeded by a Hurrian dictionary. The cuneiform fonts must have made this a terribly hard book to publish! Those wishing to go straight to the fables will do well to attend to the continuous translations that appear on 28, 35, 42, 46, 47, 53, 56, 61, and 68. The Philological Overview in Chapter 4 provides a summary list of the nine tales on Kbo 32.12 (73) and the fourteen tales on Kbo 32.14 (74). Some eleven pages of bibliography, labeled References, close the book.
