Hardy Boys (Revised)*   See series as if on a bookshelf
A series of middle grade novels written to appeal to young boys starring two brothers, the sons of a famous detective, solving their own mysteries.  They were written by several people using the pen name Franklin W Dixon.

This series includes the original 58 books starting with The Tower Treasure and ending with The Sting of the Scorpion (1978) and only includes the revisions of the first 38 books.  The copyright dates for these are the revised dates since I consider the originals to be different "books" even though they have the same title.  I have decided to duplicate the titles for this series and the original series since the works in this series.

For the books in this series I've added the "true" author to the list (even if this is questionable) along with the psuedonym Franklin W Dixon that is credited on each book.

1) The Tower Treasure
2) The House on the Cliff
3) The Secret of the Old Mill
4) The Missing Chums
5) Hunting for Hidden Gold
6) The Shore Road Mystery
7) The Secret of the Caves

Notes:
Edward L Stratemeyer (1862-1930), owner of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, created Joe and Frank Hardy, as well as many other series characters in children's literature.  He hired authors to write stories from his outlines and to agree never to reveal that they, and not the non-existant Mr Dixon, wrote the books.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
