I could never get down with the Hardy Boys, but the Three Investigators' connections with Alfred Hitchcock made me a devoted fan. In the books, the three teen detectives would typically visit Hitchcock after wrapping the case, or he might put them on the scent of a mystery. Each book also came with an introduction by Alfred Hitchcock, which was, of course, actually written by the book's author. The first 10 or so books were written by series originator Robert Arthur, and as of 30 years ago, I thought that those were the best.

The books shown here are numbers 2, 3, 8, and 13. They were published by Random House in 1964, 1965, 1967, and 1970, respectively. I have the first 20, except for #1, "The Secret of Terror Castle," which has mysteriously disappeared.

Perhaps I should put in a call to lead investigator Jupiter Jones.

    I notice that Hitch makes a cameo appearance on the covers of books 2 and 3. Is he also on the others? Can't tell from here... Tx!

    Ha! I hadn't noticed. He doesn't appear on the other two. I also checked some others in the series, and he's not on those either.
