Most of the first 58 and up through 66 are available as ebooks and all of them are available in print. But it isn't surprising that Simon and Schuster wouldn't have them listed, since they don't have the rights to them. Books 1 through 66 are under Penguin publishing. I'm so happy the paperback HB books, up through 190, are becoming available in ebook. :) 8) Here is a new, cool-looking, enthusiastic Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew book site that has a lot of updated info and release dates about the Hardy Boys books. :) Also has a post from the 11th about the new look at Papercutz. :) I see that someone from Papercutz even posted a comment on the "About page". :) 8) This site is called Hardy and Drew Mysteries and has about Simon and Schuster HB books, Penguin HB books, and Papercutz HB books. :)
Well Simon & Schuster do have rights to the first 66 books (just not the publishing rights), but still you'd think that they would link to them, since they still get revenue from them.  It's just like the Papercutz books are published by Papercutz, but Simon & Schuster still own the characters and stories to some extent.

And publishing rights would be exactly what I was referring to, that Penguin has the publishing rights to them. I agree it would be good if the S&S site would link to them. 8)

I spotted two major errors.
1. "Mystery at Moorsea Manor" is not a Nancy Drew on Campus book!
2. "Model Crime" is not a Nancy Drew Files book! (There is a Nancy Drew Files book called "A Model Crime", but that's not the book shown)

Yep, you're right, Dinosaur Dan, and like Judah-Ben-Hur noted, actually none of the titles listed there at nancydrew.com are for "Nancy Drew on Campus",  they're all titles from the Nancy Drew series. Good catches. 8) The same error is on Simon and Schuster's other site. Plus, on nancydrew.com's main page the word "Arctic" for Curse of the Arctic Star is misspelled.

Yep- I've noticed such errors too. Well, I assume it's a work in progress so I'll give them a pass for now. Hopefully they will get these things fixed soon.

Actually, the files section lists "The Perfect Plot" and "Tall, Dark,and Deadly" which are both Nancy Drew Files books.

Another error. The page has the wrong book cover.
