When I was in the Navy the ship's library (more like broom closet with books) had a great number of Doc Savage books.

I tried reading them. I didn't care for them. :)

Only Doc and I are fans?

 

Amazing!

 

I'm a tad surprised, myself.

I remember reading some books about a boy and girl named, Dick and Jane. They had a dog named, Spot. -_-

I guess we are in the same age bracket...Because I remember them also...

Doc Savage was written for early teen-age boys in the thirties and forties.

 

181 volumes. The first I read, in 1962, was Shadow of The Wolf and I eventually owned all 181 stories.

 

They still crop up now and again but the last I saw were two stories to the book and were NOT in order.

I don't recall the first I read, and I can't say how many, although it was nowhere near all of them. For the longest time, I wanted a sword cane like Ham had, though.

Those sword canes are still for sale, but laws vary from place to place.

Now I'd rather have guns. OK, maybe a claymore...

I don't recognize any of the ones you have listed.

Do you recognize this name? I have some of his books and my dad had them when I was a kid.

I fist read the Doc Savage stories in comic book form then read some of the books. Unfortunately, I also watched the movie they made.

I have the first 80 Bantam reprints, need to dig them out and read them again. Wonderful stuff. Don't know if kids today would be able to understand the technology like Autogiros and the like.

When I tried to donate mine to the high school where I worked i was told that they were inappropriate for children under 21 years old.

That's sad, but expected I suppose. I read all of mine before the age of 14.
