Title: House on the Point by Benjamin Hoff
Post by: CalvinKnox on December 22, 2017, 03:13:06 PM
Has anyone else read this book?  I borrowed it from the library a few years ago.  It was an interesting twist of House on the Cliff.  Doesn't Simon & Schuster own the "Hardy Boys"? if so, how did he get away with writing a book that features Frank and Joe?

I have heard of this but I haven't read it. I suppose Hoff must have been able to get permission to use the characters.

House on The Point is a parody of The Hardy Boys.

But if I remember correctly, the main characters all have the same names, no poorly disguised names like "Frank and Joe Harris".  I read somewhere that Hoff was into far-eastern mysticism and had rejected the publishing industry.

I haven't read this one.  I did not think I have seen it anywhere for sale or in a library.  Of course I wasn't looking for it.
