Welcome to The Hardy Boys Online.
For 23 years, this website has been a resource for fans of the Hardy Boys books. 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.
