01: The Drone Pursuit (July 2, 2019) - For Sale: Hardcover - Paperback

The Hardy Boys meet Alex Rider in this start to a brand-new series starring everyone's favorite inventor - Tom Swift!

When your dad funds the Swift Academy of Science and Technology, you're bound to have a bunch of tech at your disposal. So no one bats an eye when Tom and his best friend, Noah, test their new virtual reality drone before class. At the academy, once class starts and the drone is parked, their brainiac friends then launch into farfetched discussions about the curriculum. And when they watch a documentary about the FBI's most wanted hackers from the eighties, they quickly start speculating that the academy custodian is one of them.

At first, Tom dismisses the idea as another one of his friends' conspiracy theories. But using their new drone, he spies the custodian acting suspiciously around school. As Tom and his friends search for evidence that the custodian is the missing hacker, the signs become impossible to ignore when Tom gets threatening messages that warn him away from investigating. And when someone releases a virus in the school servers, all bets are off as the adjoining servers at tech giant Swift Enterprises come under fire. Can Tom and his friends uncover the true culprit before it's too late?

  02: The Sonic Breach (July 2, 2019) - For Sale: Hardcover - Paperback

The Hardy Boys meet Alex Rider in this second novel in a brand-new series starring everyone's favorite inventor - Tom Swift!

Tom gets to take all sorts of cool classes at the Swift Academy of Science and Technology, but robotics may be the one he is most excited for. Their teacher is holding a battling robot tournament, and Tom has to build a machine that will come out on top.

With the final battle coming up, Tom and his friends need as much time as possible to refine their masterpiece. But the rest of their teachers have been giving so many pop quizzes that they can barely focus in class, never mind concentrate on the tournament. Naturally, everyone is frustrated with the trend.until a mysterious new phone app appears. If students get pop quizzes during first period, they can warn everyone else about it by getting their phones to emit a high-pitched sound-a mosquito alarm-that adults can't hear.

Tom is unsure about the whole thing, but it technically isn't cheating, right? But when someone changes the app to break all the rules, the ethics aren't debatable anymore. The longer the perpetrator remains unknown, the more harshly teachers treat all the students, and the pressure won't stop until Tom and his friends track down the person behind the app takeover.
  03: Restricted Access (October 22, 2019) - For Sale: Hardcover - Paperback

Tom and his friends are trapped in a quarantine lockdown in this third novel in Tom Swift Inventors' Academy-perfect for fans of The Hardy Boys or Alex Rider.

Tom has always tried to play down his pseudo celebrity status at the academy. So, the last thing he wants is for a reporter's son to follow him around for an article on the school. When this extends to one of the biggest field trips of the year-an overnight lock-in at Swift Enterprises-Tom couldn't be less pleased.

With his new shadow in tow, Tom expects the night to be uneventful at best. But when the facility suddenly goes into quarantine mode, the overnight lock-in turns into a building-wide lockdown. Tom and his friends are left trapped in their respective rooms, with no way to communicate the outside world. As they make their way through the facility using methods that are a little more.creative.than normal, Tom and his friends start realizing that there is more to this quarantine than meets the eye. But with no way to call for help, it's up to them to not only escape, but also find out what-or who-is behind the lockdown.

Other Books With Tom Swift References
American Beauthy Cover
American Beauty

by Allen M. Steele
Contains a parody of Tom Swift:
"Tom Swift and His Humongous Mechanical Dude"

In these 10 stories, Hugo-winner Steele shows as much imagination and wit at lesser length as he does at novel length. "Agape among the Robots" is an amiable satire on human relationships as translated by robots. "Green Acres" offers more satire in an alternate-history setting in which marijuana is legal and hemp is also valuable as the source of substitutes for plastic. The shared-world story "Graceland" introduces rock 'n' roll to Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld. "Warning, Warning" is a homage to the venerable, ambivalently cherished old TV show Lost in Space, while "Tom Swift and His Humongous Mechanical Dude" gives a satirical nod to the world of the Tom Swift Jr. juvenile sf novels of many a baby-boomer's fond memory. Also noteworthy is an entry in Steele's passionate alternate recent history in which space exploration continued, "A Walk across Mars," set during the joint Russian-American expedition of 1976. In all, a solid set, with not a mediocre, let alone dumb, piece in it. Roland Green

Edward Stratemeyer And The Stratemeyer Syndicate
Edward Stratemeyer And The Stratemeyer Syndicate

by Diedre Johnson
An in-depth look at the man and his work.
Diedre Johnson's biography of Edward Stratemeyer leaves little, if anything, to be desired. His entire history is covered here with, of course, special emphasis on his incredible "Syndicate" - a Syndicate which produced the most influential juvenile fiction of the 20th century (Tom Swift, Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew to mention but a few) and whose influence is still felt to this day. A must read for any fan of juvenile literature.

Secret Of The Stratemeyer Syndicate
Secret Of The Stratemeyer Syndicate

by Carol Billman
An in-depth look at the Stratemeyer Syndicate.

"The Secret of the Stratemeyer Syndicate" starts with a good, if brief, overview of the Stratemeyer Syndicate and its founder, Edward Stratemeyer. It then moves on to examine in detail four mystery series created by the Syndicate: Ruth Fielding, the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and the Happy Hollisters. Of the four, the Ruth Fielding chapter is the most detailed but all contain valuable information on their respective series. There are a few minor factual errors, such as the author's claim that Edward wrote the early Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books, among other minor gaffs. Despite this, this book remains a valuable resource to researchers of the Syndicate and is a good read for fans of the series mentioned.
