The pulp reprint market is actually pretty lively, but largely invisible to the non-specialist. The best place for one-stop shopping is The Vintage Library (http://www.vintagelibrary.com/index.cfm). A search of Bellem turns up four collections dedicated to Dan Turner, plus appearances in a couple other collections. I can heartily recommend the Adventure House collection of Turner stories, published as #60 of "High Adventure" (this pulp reprint series is so good I subscribe to it).

While shopping at this website, be sure to look at the "What's On Sale" link; the super collection of Yellow Menace stories _It's Raining More Corpses In Chinatown_ is on sale right now. This features stories by hard-boiled authors John K. Butler, Frank Gruber, Steve Fisher, Frederick Nebel and others. Don Hutchison's funny and informative introduction alone is worth the price of the book.
