I'm ignorant of these texts (for now). The upcoming volume will contain translations of the first two tantras, correct? Will the third one, Without Syllables, also find print in English?
Yes, after the first two, and with its complete commentary.

That's excellent news. May these translations help many, many people in their practice.

Will Zangthal Editions be doing any self-publishing of short translations and the like?
Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

I have read that the rigpa rang shar has eighty-six chapters; and is first in the list of tantras listed in the dra tal gyur.
So I'm assuming this is one of the most exhaustive given the length of the text?
