I think Bantam was Frederic Brown's main PB publisher, including the earlier edition of "Dead Ringer" (which James Hadley Chase may have stolen his title from above).

Recently read Planet for Texans and thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks for the heads up @OtherEric. Then a few days ago I made a trip to the LCS, and was surprised to find they also had PB's. I soon located another novel by Piper (Space Viking) with a terrific cover.

Then I located the one copy of an Ace "D" series sci-fi that they had. It was a duplicate of one I already have, but it was in such nice condition it was impossible to pass up.

I think you'll like Space Viking a lot.  A classic example of a great SF book with an insanely pulpy title that belies the quality.

I love me some Chas Addams.  This isn't even a paperback, but it's handy to post.  I finally put together all his books in hardcover, although my Drawn & Quartered is the 2nd edition.

I had a bunch of these hardcovers when I was a kid - I don't remember what happened to them but they were great to pore over
