More new Kafka translations

Penguin Classics has collected in one volume new or newish translations of the stories Kafka published in his lifetime. Michael Hofmann is the only named translator, but that's enough to make me covet the new edition.

It's a shame Kafka's work is published so haphazardly in English. So many different translations of the stories and even the novels now, but since the 1949 translation of Max Brod's expurgated Diaries, not one new version.
