Order of Tom Swift Books
Tom Swift is the protagonist in a series of juvenile science fiction/adventure, written under the house pseudonym Victor Appleton. The character was created by Stratemeyer Syndicate founder Edward Stratemeyer. The series has a focus on science, inventions and technology. Interestingly, the taser (which is actually an acronym for “Thomas A. Swift’s Electric Rifle”) was inspired by the fictional invention in the series. Science fiction legend Isaac Asimov considered the series to be an inspiration.
The Tom Swift character has appeared in several series, including one Tom Swift, Jr. series by “Victor Appleton II.” His first appearance was Tom Swift and His Motor Cycle, published in 1910.
