The Mad Scientist’s Club

The year is 1974. Disco was at it's height (or depth, depending on how you look at

And I was reading a book by Bertrand Brinley called The Mad Scientist's Club. I has
a story of a bunch of boys who have various adventures and make their townspeople
look foolish.

I loved it. Unfortunately, I lost the book.

Last year, I thought of it again, and found a website run by one of the children of
Brinley. I bought a copy of The
Mad Scientist's Club
and "The
new adventures of the mad scientist's club
", and introduced them to my 9-year-old
daughter, who loved them.

Definitely recommended if you have kids. I just ordered the prequel ("The
Big Kerplop
") to give to my daughter as a holiday present.

    Eric, thank you! I have been intermittently racking my brain for years trying to remember the name of those great stories I used to read. 🙂
