MiscellaneousOther Books With Tom Swift References
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

Traces the history of Tom Swift in a number of detailed ways, looking at everything from the sci-fi qualities of the character's inventions to the possible locations of his hometown. From there, the author broadens out to talk about all of the Stratemeyer Syndicate's boys books.
Examining the contents, themes and publishing histories of juvenile literature in late-20th-century America, this text covers Louisa May Alcott to Nancy Drew's home town, including Tom Swift, Dave Fearless, the Bobbsey Twins, Howard R. Garis, Leo Edwards, the Rover Boys and Percy Keese Fitzhugh. The book has a factual as well as humorous approach and includes many illustrations to detail the publishing histories of these individual books and series.
Written for the younger reader, this bookcovers the life of Edward Stratemeyer in general and his Syndicate's series books in more detail.
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.
Stratemeyer Pseudonyms and Series Books
Deidre Johnson's groundbreaking book is a "must have" for fans of Stratemeyer Syndicate books. It lists all the books in the Stratemeyer canon with publication information. There are also appendix list pseudonyms, a chronological list of the series, series publishers, contributers And artists, plus more.
"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.
An old-time fan reminisces about the reading exploits of his youth in a light-hearted, often humorous manner. Mr. Prager gives a good accounting of Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, the Rover Boys and many lesser-known juvenile series book heroes. A must read for fans of the genre.
The story of the remarkable Garis family who created Uncle Wiggily and wrote countless other children adventures.
