Hoffner is a co-director of the University of Chicago's Hittite Dictionary. He presents the first English translations of 23 myths based on the original tablets, taking into account recent textual discoveries and published studies of the texts. The first edition was published in 1990; the second includes new introductions to each myth and a newly published Hurrian myth. He also provides a glossary of names and technical terms and a guide to pronunciation. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
