After Macmillan ended the run of the Laurentian Library in 1979, they replaced it with a new series called the Macmillan Paperback Series. It published books beginning in the early 80s until the later part of the decade when Canadian Publishing Corporation and Stoddard Publishing took over the series and removed the numbering (which was found on the title page and copyright page).

The Macmillan and Stoddard/CPC books look the same except for the logos on the spine, the absence of the Macmillan Paperback identification on the top center of the front cover, and different information on the copyright pages. Also of note, General Publishing, another publishing and distribution company owned by Stoddart issued books in the series as well and had a relationship with Boreal Books, who the latter also issued at least one book in the series (The Mad Trapper of Rat River). All these books are put in the second table together. During the transition from Macmillan to General Publishing, it seems General bought the stock of remaining Macmillan Paperbacks and issued them as their own with only covering the Macmillan logo on the top center of the front cover with a sticker that states General Paperbacks instead. I classed these as Macmillan Paperbacks as the books are actual Macmillans.
