Calling MacFadden a B-list paperback publisher might be a little too generous, although they reprinted some older mysteries and Westerns that I enjoyed. I think they reprinted some of Edward S. Aarons' early, non-series books and some Day Keene novels. Sometime during the Seventies they were bought by Manor Books. Manor reused some of the covers from MacFadden books on different titles.
