I was happy to find one copy!

Nice copy! I've been collecting PB's for over 30 years and this is one i've just never sold when I found one. I still have my original copy from the 80's that I pulled out when I sold 95% of my vintage paperback collection to Jon Warren in the '90's.

I have 3 but i'd be a hoarder for more. It's 2nd place to Reform School Girl in iconic vintage paperback covers in my book. Marijuana Girl in the original Uni-Book edition is #3 (IMHO)

So-does this fit better here,or in the pulp thread?

Honestly, with the digests I figure it's pretty much a toss-up; they fit both places fairly well.

A few new pickup's. Enough reading material to keep me busy for a few weeks. Big Planet by Vance first appeared in Startling Stories in September of 1952.

I think it's one of the Shaver Mystery stories, actually.

An Asimov masterpiece in the single format

Great cover on that book. Oddly and perhaps due to my focusing on Ace doubles, I had just seen this cover for the first time about 2 weeks ago.  On a related note Asimov's first novel of this series "Foundation" still holds up pretty high on the lists of classic sci-fi novels of the 50's.  See the link below to classic sci-fi of 1934 to 1963, compiled by hilobrow, with some iconic pulp magazines included.
