Armchair Fiction is proud to offer beautiful paperback editions of the first four books in the classic Ted Scott Flying Stories series: “Over the Ocean to Paris,” “Rescued in the Clouds,” “Over the Rockies with the Air Mail,” and “First Stop Honolulu,” all written in 1927 by John W. Duffield (aka Franklin W. Dixon), illustrated by Walter S. Rogers, and published by Grosset and Dunlap. Unlike Ted’s Hardy Boys counterparts, there were no later updated versions offered by Grosset and Dunlap.  The Ted Scott series was discontinued in the mid-1940s and old copies of the originals were the only editions available to collectors—until now!  In this first tale of the series, “Over the Ocean to Paris,” the reader is taken from Ted Scott’s humble, impoverished beginnings to his remarkable rise into the U.S. Air Mail Service as a crackerjack pilot.  Like the youth heroes of many juvenile series novels of that era, Ted Scott is nearly ideal in body and soul, with no overt character flaws of any kind.  Even when tempted by underhanded adversaries, Ted manages to fend them off without lowering himself to their ignoble levels.  Later on you’ll witness Scott’s emergence as a great stunt flier and finally to his astonishing feats as a record-setting trans-ocean flier, all the while facing danger—from both humans and Mother Nature!  Like the Hardy Boys, the excitement in the Ted Scott stories is rapid-fire and engaging.  So get ready for an entertaining slice of nostalgic, idyllic Americana, back when the good guys and the bad guys were as discernible as day and night.
