    I've read Tom Swift novels before—most recently The Black Dragon which I enjoyed and Cyborg Kickboxer which I most certainly did not—but The Rescue Mission falls within the third series the one I remember having read and enjoyed as a teenager And on rereading The Rescue Mission I was not disappointed for the most partThe third Tom Swift series credited to brand name author Victor Appleton but—at least in the case of The Rescue Mission—actually written by Bill Rotsler and Sharman Divolo was different from the other Tom Swift series in that while it starred Swift as teenage prodigy inventor it took place further in the future and was very much space opera And true to form in The Rescue Mission the team of Swift computer expert Ben Walking Eagle and empath Anita Thorwald investigate a distress call from outside the Solar System itself The Rescue Mission is fun if a bit juvenile but it doesn't condescend to the young adults who would have been reading it in 1981; it decidedly did not do so to me However it gets points off in this regard in its referencing past and future Tom Swift adventures by the names of the adventures rather than by reference This is hamfisted at best and at worst it makes brutally obvious that the book is part of a series—collect them all The writing is nothing special but it reads uickly and is a nice introduction to or less hard science fiction for kids and young adults; with luck such youngsters might progress to say Robert A Heinlein's juvenile science fiction such as say Starship Troopers And it's nice to see Rotsler and Divolo making good tacit use of Isaac Asimov's First Law of Robotics in the character of Aristotle and playing with convention by making the villains violate the First LawWhere The Rescue Mission falls off most precipitously is in Anita's role as damsel in distress Yes Rotsler and Divolo wrote the book in 1981 but that's really no excuse for not making Anita as strong as she could be otherwise I don't recall that in Terror on the Moons of Jupiter the other Tom Swift novel I remember reading as a teenager there was uite the same problemBut all things being eual that's a minor mar on an otherwise enjoyable if fluffy book
