If I see second hand copies of titles in this series I tend to pick 'em up. Like Dixon, I've got two sizes. It looks like the 'trade' size cam out first, as they have a 1988 date on the page with the copyright/edition info, and the smaller paperbacks are dated 1990.

I have the following in trade format:

Leigh Brackett, The Tiger Among Us Gil Brewer, 13 French Street and The Red Scarf David Goodis, The Burglar

and these in pocket book format:

Henry Farrell, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane Kenneth Fearing, The Big Clock

And I suspect there are others around the house.
