Improbable on “Science Friday” today: Tom Swift

I’m going to be on NPR’s Science Friday program again today, discussing the Tom Swift novels.

(Special thanks to Jess Zimmerman for sending a copy of Tom Swift and His Photo Telephone!)

BONUS: A repository of info about the Tom Swift books

BONUS: Tom Swift and the blessings of invention

BONUS: Wikipedia is a good gateway for info about the Stratemeyer Syndicate — the inventive organization that created the Tom Swift books, and the Nancy Drew books, and the Hardy Boys books, and lots of others.
