The Ebooks

The time has finally come! Jon has taken his spare time and turned it into 10 e-files of the 10 Turbo Cowboys books! Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to this series Jon!

Turbo Cowboys #1: Jump Start

For those of you interested, you can download 9 of the 10 books from this link. Jon had issues getting the eighth book scanned, so it isn’t included in that link. He did, however, just get it done, and here is the link for book 8!

Thanks again Jon, you definitely rule! And for the rest of you, enjoy the books! I know I will!

Turbo Cowboys #7: Night Riders

Official words: This is not an official working of the Turbo Cowboys, and these ebooks are not official copies. This site is only a fan site and is not affiliated with the Turbo Cowboys, the original publisher, or anything else related to this series.

Book Covers

Every now and then I do a little checking on our favorite Cowboys. Just now I discovered this little blog is the number two and three results on a Google search for Turbo Cowboys. The first spot belongs to Jump Start on Amazon.

I also noticed the picture I took for Jump Start for use on this site is now being used by another site, Library Thing, which I think is cool! My copy of a Turbo Cowboys book cover is being used elsewhere on the net! It’s the little things, people.

Lastly, I’m doing some updating around here because it’s needed. It has always been needed. I wanted to do it as soon as I created this site and always put it off. Now I’m getting to it, or at the very least going to try to. So you may see some changes by your next visit. First and foremost, I’m going to finally add all of the book covers on the books page. If I can find them all, that is. EDIT: I still need the covers to Speed Shift and City Of Glass. If any of you have those books and would like to contribute pictures of the covers to the site, send them to me at mattroberts79 at gmail dot com. Thanks!

Lastly, every now and then we get new visitors to the site, old fans who have found us in the hopes of learning something new about their favorite childhood book series, and I’m glad they can find that info here. I’m really happy and proud of this little community of fans we’ve gathered, and I welcome all old fans/new visitors to the site!

More Author Info

I was curious to see if anything had been put online about the Turbo Cowboys since this little blog went up. I discovered something I hadn’t seen before at the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. They have the info we have here, and they’ve added one more name to the mix, John Read. They also have a list of the books and which ones were written by whom. Very interesting that this would seem to go up online after this blog did. Either way, I’m glad we have more info on the books out there than what was previously available!

You can check it out here,

Now the fun begins… finding out more info on John Read!

Slight Update

Hey fans, I can’t believe I didn’t have one of these before now, but I JUST added a “follow” link to the right there so you can follow this blog to find out when anything gets updated. For those of you who have been stopping by wondering when we’re going to have the digital copies ready for viewing, we thank you for keeping up with us and for the continued interest in not just this project, but in the Turbo Cowboys. Hopefully soon we’ll have some good news coming your way as far as that is concerned. Until then, click that follow button and you’ll get an email when we update this site. Thanks again for your patience and continued interest!

Up And Running

Well, we got it basically the best we could get it for now. While we still have to add a couple more pictures of the covers of the books, we’re really done here. We’ve set out on a mission to provide as much information about the series as possible, since that information can’t be found anywhere else. We hope that we have provided you with that information, and if you are wanting to know anything else about the series, let us know! If you can come up with a question we couldn’t think of, please ask us! We’ll try to get the info for you, but really, everything we could find out about Turbo Cowboys is on this site.

Also, the digital copies of the books is underway and soon they’ll be available. Where from, we can’t say ;)

Stay tuned.


I’d like to welcome you to the only website dedicated to the young adult book series from the late 1980s, the Turbo Cowboys. My name is Matt Roberts and I am a fan of the series. Another fan, Jonathan, recently contacted me and has supplied me with some very cool info on the books and the author, Tony Phillips. With the info he’s given me and the info I hope to soon get myself, hopefully this website will be a one stop shop for all info regarding the series and the author, something that is EXTREMELY difficult to come by.

This site is currently a work in progress, but it should be done in the next couple of days, hopefully. Until then, the About Page has been updated with a little bit of info, but the rest is sure to come. Thanks for stopping by.
