    Also curious is that their logo is smaller on this book than it was on previous editions in the series. It was also smaller on the Malerman book. So I think they might be trying other printers?
    They switched printers a couple books back. I can't remember after which book they switched though. The previous printer they were using basically ate an entire run of books and had to do them all over again.

    From Camelot's website:

    "A Little Aqua Book of Marine Stories by Tim Waggoner (All of our 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 advised 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."

    It seems that that message should have been relayed to everyone by Boarderlands. Stuff happens and this would have answered a lot of questions for the collectors of this series

    I thought this was public knowledge. I remember it being talked about here when it happened.

    They might have. From the last several posts I just figured that wasn't the case.

    I doubt Borderlands sent an email out to everyone. They may have made a post on their website or something, or just told people that asked. From experience you don't want to go pointing problems out to everyone. Most people won't actually care or even see the thing as a problem until it's pointed out to them. But once you draw attention to it they'll care, even if had they found that problem on their own they may not have cared. It's kinda a weird psychological thing human beings do.

    And collectors probably take that to the next level.

    Sometimes, a lot of our customers aren't even really collectors. Most of them really just buy a lot of our stuff to read or just because they like books. It comes with the type of stuff we publish, since a lot of stuff we publish our edition is often the only edition or the only hardcover edition.

    As much as I LOVE the fancy editions that CD and other specialty presses publish, I think those are less important than the books published that would otherwise not have a hard cover edition or would not have been published otherwise at all.

    Completely agree. I have been introduced to a lot of good fiction through Cemetery Dance publishing of "lesser known" authors.

    Gotta post my appreciation to Borderlands Press here. I emailed them and told them my Little Black Book needed to be replaced and without asking for pics or any details at all they responded that they'd send me a replacement copy. I got it in great condition a week later with my number and everything. That's great customer service and I'm happy to call it out.

    Glad they got it resolved for you quickly and satisfactory.

    There will be no Series 4 for me if there is no King in Series 3.
    Maybe.
    I have been known to waffle on decisions when it comes to collecting.
    And BP has treated me very well!
    And it all depends on who else is going to be in Series 3 and who might be in Series 4.
    So it depends maybe.

    The new Ramsey Campbell detective novel/novella in the new LITTLE BOOK sounds very interesting. Also interesting was the blurb at the bottom of the newest Borderlands newsletter, a two-volume set of the complete short fiction of Peter Straub.

    I don’t get Borderlands’s newsletter...what is this about a two volume Straub set?
