The Mad Scientists' Club
40th Anniversary Edition
A strange sea monster appears on the lake ...a fortune is unearthed from an old cannon ...a valuable dinosaur egg is stolen. Watch out as the Mad Scientists turn Mammoth Falls upside down!
Take seven, lively, "normal" boys -- one an inventive genius -- give them a clubhouse for cooking up ideas, an electronics lab above the town hardware store, and a good supply of Army surplus equipment, and you, dear reader, have a boyhood dream come true and a situation that bears watching.
In the hands of an author whose own work involved technological pioneering, the proceedings are well worth undivided attention, as the boys explore every conceivable possibility for high and happy adventure in the neighborhood of Mammoth Falls. To the unutterable confusion of the local dignitaries -- and the unalloyed delight of Bertrand Brinley's fans -- the young heroes not only outwit their insidious rival, Harmon Muldoon, but emerge as town heroes. Here, captured under one cover, are the fun-filled escapades of the young scientists whose exciting capers debuted in Boys' Life 40 years ago.
Author's Edition with new text added from the original manuscripts, never before seen or read by the public!
ISBN 1-930900-10-4 Hardcover 217 pages. Ages 8-12. $17.95
The New Adventures of
the Mad Scientists' Club
Just another quiet day in Mammoth Falls. Or is it? Have flying saucers really been sighted? How about those rumblings in the ground during the wee hours of the morning... and a midget submarine hidden in a secret cavern?
With evidence like this, our seven young geniuses can't be far behind. And they're not! The town of Mammoth Falls will never be the same again, because here come the Mad Scientists with five more mad adventures!
Stories in this volume: The Telltale Transmitter, The Cool Cavern, Big Chief Rainmaker, The Flying Sorcerer and The Great Confrontation.

The Big Kerplop!
The elusive and long anticipated third volume of the Mad Scientists' Club series is coming in 2003!
The whine of jet engines thunders from above as the giant Air Force bomber makes its approach to Westport Field. Suddenly, the citizens of Mammoth Falls are startled to see the bomb bay doors open and an object drop down, down, directly into Strawberry lake. Splash!
And what is that object? Why a bomb, what else? Not just a common, ordinary, conventional bomb, but an atomic bomb! But that's just the beginning of the latest (actually the first) madcap adventure - book-length this time - of that outrageous, notorious threat to municipal sanity known as The Mad Scientists' Club. As you know, with these boys anything can happen, and it does!
