Much of Woolrich's stuff was reprinted by Ballantine in mass market-size paperbacks in the 80s and these copies have been, at least in the fairly recent past, easy to find. They have distinctive black covers with Woolrich's name in red neon. For years, I picked 'em up in used bookstores for a dollar apiece.

My favorites of Woolrich's are Phantom Lady, The Black Curtain and I Married a Dead Man.
