Dear Current Ghostwriters,

PLEASE go back to the Hardy Boys (and even ND Supermysteries) we have come to know and love. PICK UP an older book and actually READ it. THEN work on a current UB or Super Mystery book.

What you are giving us now makes us sigh and read a book we have already read  6 times instead of your new "so called" Hardy Boys material.

It makes us sad...and somewhat irritated.

We do not have high hopes for this one as we now see your patterns and/or "work" from the other books.

Sincerely,

HB FANS


That's how I feel about that.

It's not so much the ghostwriters fault but S&S and the editorial.

Where's the bonfire?  I guess S&S is expecting us to pitch this book into one then.

It looks more like the boys and Nancy are headed to the bayou, not  bonfire.

Well...it still stinks either way...no matter who is at fault.

Ohhhhhh..... That is just a TERRIBLE cover! :P What are those cover designer people thinking? It's a horrible, clashy obnoxious red design, it'll practically give people seizures! It's LAME. I never liked the people covers before, but now.... Ugh!  :P :P :P :P

You mean the photo-realistic covers? Because I do like the book covers with people on it- but more like the illustrated characters on the Digests and Casefiles and Originals - most all of them have had more action going on than most of the Undercover Brothers- (at least for the Supermysteries series- they look like they're brooding, tough and "cool" kids who probably listen to grunge rock or death metal... (which is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on which band and which moments...)

Yeah, I didn't like the people they chose for the hardy boys. The nancy drew covers are generally nice, but the hardy boys always look so..... I don't know, bored to death?

I'm not opposed to real people being on the cover but they could at least do a different pose. It seems like the "cover design people" :) copy and paste then use photoshop. Not well...either.

I'm more interested in seeing how the actual book is.

Bonfire Masquerade will be 192 pages, it's like they are choosing page numbers at random.

I'm sure they don't pre-choose how many pages the book would be. They probably just write it, and it turns out how it turns out.
