Harlequin and Star Part I

Star Guidance, Inc. was a New York based paperback publisher from late 1949 to early 1954. Star published 39 "Star Books" titles plus nine renumbered reprints for a total of 48 books, all but two westerns. Harlequin published eight of the titles from 1951 to 1956. Here is one that was published under two titles and two authors.

Bad Hombre by Archie Joscelyn is a paperback original. Star reprinted under a new title, Texas Outlaw, the title Harlequin used but with one of Joscelyn's pseudonyms, Al Cody, as the author.
