Ballantine series with the black covers and Woolrich's name in red neon. I think they did something like 12 titles and they still can be found in used bookstores. Then there were some Caroll & Graf books that actually looked similar to the Ballantine, one of which was The Vampire's Honeymoon. It collected some of his horror stories including The Street of Jungle Death.

My memory of the novel... is that it wasn't so hot. If I can locate it, I will reread it as self-punishment. I did love the movie but I don't think I've read the short story.
