Bobby Brewster

This site will contain information on the Bobby Brewster books written by H E Todd. These are no longer published, though many are available second hand. We hope to be able to prepare the text of many of the books and stories in an online form. Meanwhile, here is a list of most of the books and the stories they contained.

Our thanks to David Schutte for helping us compile this list. Also, some details taken from Bookfinder (http://www.bookfinder.com/author/h-e-todd/), who have one of the most complete lists of available copies.  We have tried to be accurate about the dates and ASIN/ISBN numbers; I think the orignal dates for each book are correct but am less certain about other details.
