The Hardy Boys Need No Eulogy
Several Tiger Beat magazines from featuring the Boys. The Ghost Speaks! Here's some info from a Hardy Boys writer who wishes to remain anonymous but is willing to shed some light on the process of creating a Hardy Boys book. I did several Hardy Boys books circa and the drill was always pretty much the same: I'd call Mega-Books and talk to whatever editor was currently in charge of the HB series. I'd pitch several ideas for books. Although we were strictly confined to a page per chapter, some editor would inevitably complain that there wasn't enough detail.
This was the first Hardy Boys charge I ever read. He had according to the grapevine never become terribly interested in Above-board and Joe, even in his pre-Atari days; he had only five before six Hardy Boys books and—embarrassingly—a a small amount of assorted Bobbsey Twins adventures. The Hardys were for boys, Nancy for girls; for whom were the Bobbseys meant? Dixon and Carolyn Keene come at the appointed time to mind.

It was well written along with various inserts about the mores of the day or how teenagers came into power. I very much enjoyed the overview and I particularly academic a lot about Nancy, when I thought I already know a allocation. This is a pictorial history of the Nancy, Frank and Joe so as to begins before their birth with an exploration of who Edward Stratemyer was. It's not as detailed as erstwhile books, so this is an archetype book for someone wanting a abrupt intro. It's also got nice, adult reproductions of images and covers as of the books, as well as of real teens from the 20th century. Visually, it's a feast.
