    Yeah, me too. Even better if they are never published anywhere else for all eternity.

    My Little Aqua Book is scheduled to arrive today. Hopefully the snow will not prevent the post man from getting into our neighborhood.

    I just randomly received two Little Book slipcases that I ordered ages ago. It was a nice surprise.

    Received mine today. Looks okay but it was shipped in a padded envelope.

    I do love these little books and can't wait to read this one. It is red, little, and looks like a nice quality product.

    Have you gotten the other books in the series? It drives me a little crazy that they're all shipped in a padded envelope. Mine should be waiting for me when I get home.

    Last one I bought was the Neil Gaiman book. I don't recall how it was shipped.

    Sweet deal. I used to have a whole closet of these collectible boxes. :-)

    I got my Little Book yesterday and it's obvious that the Little Books have gotten a big improvement! I know that Tom was having trouble with a printer who mauled an entire batch of the Mort Castle book and had to be redone. And I think there were issues with the Wagoneer one as well. This newest one is the best I've seen. I'll post photos to show the difference. I'm thrilled with this improvement in quality.

    Here are some pics showing the binding improvements.

    **EDIT** to be clear, the new book is the red one. That's the one I'm claiming has a much better quality.

    The top view:

    The bottom view:

    Side view (not really capturing the differences):

    And this is one change I'm kinda bummed about, they've made the logo on the back cover a lot smaller:

    That Gaiman book is worth quite a bit.

    It was a substantial problem. Here's the note from Camelot's product page for the whole series:

    A Little Aqua Book of Marine Stories by Tim Waggoner (All of uur copies of the Little Aqua Book were indented in several places down the spine, some as many as 7 indentations and we asked the publisher if this was a problem with this particular title and were advied that "Yes, the printer switched to a new! improved! binding machine and it was a mess. This batch is actually the second time through machine because the first run was totally unusable and the author had to re-sign all the sheets. Please tell your folks we had no control over this and we may be switching printers going forward. But we cannot risk going back to press again with the Aqua title. This one is below our usual standards but it is going to have to do—we cannot go through this again. And they shorted us on the second run besides. . . so I have no replacements."
    I can see my copy from where I'm sitting and the indentions are noticeable from across the room.

    I actually talked to Tom about this when he dropped off our copies of the Aqua book. I know he was looking for a different printer, he should be bringing our copies of the red one soon, I'll have to ask him if he found a new printer or worked out the problems with his current printer.

    I rarely sell but I actually did sell that book. I don't recall for how much but percentage wise it was fairly impressive.

    That was a spur of the moment purchase when it was announced. I'm not a fan of Gaiman but did think the book looked cool.

    *Edit* I think I have sold 4-5 books in the last 10 years...Like I said the little I buy I typically keep.

    It also featured Gahan Wilson art.
