"Glas has become almost disturbingly indispensable. The texts and voices out of Russia come through with formidable insistence. More now than ever before, precisely because hopes on their native ground are again precarious." George Steiner
"I was delighted to read Glas. It is clear that there is a great deal of literary talent in Russia today, and the excellent selection which my copy of Glas contains promises well for its future."
"The writing in Glas offers startling evidence that the great Russian literary tradition lives on." American Bookseller
"Glas is a first-rate series, well planned and very well translated. Anyone interested in Russia and good writing should seek it out."
"GLAS gives us a sense of Russian literature in motion. If it cannot perhaps mercifully convey fully what it is like to live in Russia at present, GLAS at least gives us a taste of what it is to be a reader there." Times Literary Supplement
"Thanks to GLAS many of the new Russian writers are now available to the Western reader." The New Yorker
"These stories, which are amusing and unique, act like a playground swing, each one flinging itself into directions different from the others..." Boston Book Review
"The standard of writing in GLAS is high and the translations read unusually well." The Independent on Sunday
"GLAS attempts to present genuinely fresh writing from Russia to the English reading public." The Tribune
"Russia remains a country of distinguished writers, and GLAS series, presenting Russian writing in English translation, provides a welcome overview of the current state of Russian literary affairs."
"GLAS, daughter of glasnost, seems likely to make a significant contribution to the restoration of readers' faith in the editorial independence of contemporary journals. If you cannot find GLAS in the shops, ask for it. This journal deserves wide distribution." Irish Times
"The Moscow publisher Glas, run by the indefatigable Natasha Perova, publishes English translations of such work, including Rubinstein, with novelists including Asar Eppel, AndreiSergeev and Ludmila Ulitskaya - but they must be sought out. The translator Marian Schwarz, described a comparable situation in the United States, which made it bizarre when Perova described how a leading New York publisher, finally awake to Russian writing, asked her how Glas dare interfere with the market by publishing translations itself. Change is on the way, and, naturally, the virtuous need not expect to prosper. " The Guardian
"If you cannot find GLAS in the shops, ask for it. This journal deserves wide distribution." " Irish Times
