    My guess on the changing materials would be color availability. Somewhere in either the beginning of this series or the end of the last series they had to switch printers because of damages from the printer they were using. My guess is the new printer couldn't get all the same materials / color options they used before.

    Edit: Also generally speaking there's usually only so many color options in a given material selection. So if the series has more books in it than a material has color options, there's no choice but to switch materials.

    If they're declaring that A Little Aqua Book of Aquamarine is protected by copyright laws, where does that leave A Little Aqua Book of Marine Tales? Is it open season on that book?

    Thanks for the insight, Dan. It's unfortunate that this happened. While it might have been out of Borderlands's control, it unfortunately just adds fuel to the fire with all the other issues that have come up.

    Also, while I was looking over my Little Books collection, there was a change in binding material in Series II as well. The last three books in the Series--SHARP SHINY SLIVERS by Joe Hill, CAUTIONARY TALES by Jonathan Maberry, and PROTECTOR TALES by David Morrell--were all in a shinier cloth binding. This binding is different than the ones I've seen in Series III as those tend to be a duller matte finish cloth. I'm wondering if it just comes to materials in certain colors not being available in the vinyl. Possibly testing different material as well.

    My Little Magenta book is also off-center, as pictured above.
    Just speculation, but looking at our copies I believe this happened to all of them. In which case there's really nothing Borderlands could do. Something like this isn't big enough to scrap the whole print run over and hope the author is willing to sign new sheets. Obviously you complain to the printer, but generally speaking that doesn't accomplish much, other than maybe a partial credit on your account because of the issue.

    Like Jeff, I almost began to check them all, but ultimately decided ignorance is bliss when it comes to these LITTLE BOOKS and their comedy of errors.
    Seems that should have been the title of this series. The Little Book Comedy Of Errors series. Then there would be a somewhat reasonable answer as to all the mistakes
