Yes, you read that right. LOGOS is testing interest in a collection of classic Greek and Roman literature, some in English translation. If they achieve “critical mass” they will release it to LOGOS users, in their words, “for free” with “no strings attached.” So, visit LOGOS and sign up to indicate your interest. Link here.
Here’s a video about how this collection would be useful.
More information from LOGOS:
The Perseus Classics Collection (1,114 vols.) contains works from classical Greek and Roman authors. This massive collection includes important Greek and Latin classics in their original languages; some works have an English translation. Greek and Latin grammars and commentaries are also included.
Best of all, this entire collection is free. There’s no catch. No strings attached.
It’s rare that classic works like these are made available for free to as many people who want them. It’s even more amazing when you consider that these aren’t just PDFs or text files. They’re Logos books, and they take advantage of many of the features and tools built into Logos Bible Software. So it’s hard to put into words how phenomenal this opportunity really is.
Please note that this collection requires the latest version of Logos Bible Software 4.3.

Macintosh users have been waiting for many long years for LOGOS to release a fully functioning version of LOGOS for Macintosh. I’m happy to report that this finally has happened. LOGOS 4 is available now for Macintosh. You can download the engine itself for free. Resources to use with it, of course, you must purchase.
I’m often asked by Macintosh users why we do not offer Accordance based resources. Unfortunately, in spite of our best efforts to work out a mutually agreeable business model with Accordance, this was not possible. Frankly, I remain convinced LOGOS is the best choice for Bible research software for both PC and MAC. My main reason for saying so is that LOGOS brings to the table an incomparable library of resources for Lutherans. I’m thinking here of Concordia Publishing House’s and Northwestern Publishing House’s many resources in LOGOS format. Additionally, LOGOS has powerful original language research tools, as well as a lot of other resources, for instance, the Church Fathers, and most recently, Intervarsity Press released the entire Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture in LOGOS format. You can download the LOGOS 4 for Mac engine, for free, and start getting your resources set up in it. *Warning* the time for the software to install, download all your registered resources, then index them all is very time consuming. Best to let this work be done by your computer while you snooze overnight.
Here is a video demonstrating just some of the features and benefits of LOGOS 4 for Macintosh.
