Welcome to The Hardy Boys Online.
For 14 years, this website has been a resource for fans of the Hardy Boys books. In late 2009, the site moved from Geocities to its new home at hardyboysonline.net. In the process, it's gained a fresh new look, improved navigation, and new content (with much more in the works). The site is divided into two major sections:
- Series info, where you can find booklists for each series, as well as technical information about cover art, revisions, endsheets, ghostwriters, etc.
- Literary info, where you can delve into the world of the Hardy Boys and read about characters, settings, cases, sleuthing techniques, themes, continuity, style, and other related topics.
