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.
