Overview

This is the first novel in the new Tom Swift Invention Adventures series.

Teenage inventor and scientist, Tom Swift, begins an all new series of adventures. In this first story he must find ways to tackle two seemingly disconnected problems: repair the fragile ozone cap over the Antarctic; and bring a vital supply of water to a small African nation on the verge of death by dehydration.

Thwarting him on both fronts are the appearance of several unmarked, black MIG fighter jets that attack him and his projects without warning or provocation. But, who is behind them? And, why are the pilots seemingly willing to die rather than be captured?

Never one to bring politics into anything he does, Tom finds that he is deeply embroiled in the tense and potentially deadly political situation between his small nation and a neighboring nation's fiendish dictator bent on taking over everything, even if that means killing all the people of the smaller country.

These new adventures of Tom Swift bring the young inventor back to modern times rather than having him set a couple hundred years in the future as with several of the previous series. There are at least 20 books planned (14 already written and awaiting publication) with the possibility of as many as 30 in the series. They are written in a style that may be enjoyed by any reader from ages 9-10 through 100.

About the Author

Victor Appleton II is the pseudonym given several authors of the original Tom Swift series (there were 5 of them). Each "Victor" was an accomplished author in their own right and historically took a small flat fee for the book(s) they wrote.

The Victor Appleton II for this series is a single author, Thomas Hudson, who got into writing for work almost 40 years ago, and for pleasure about 7 years ago. He has concentrated on Tom Swift novels and short stories involving many of Tom's lesser inventions, and the secondary characters in the books who you never really get to know about.

He has published more that 20 novels and 15 collections of novellas/short stories.
