Bleiler, E. F. "From the Newark Steam Man to Tom Swift." Extrapolation 30.2 (Summer 1989): 101-16.
Literary history from what seems to be a real Steam Man invention in 1868 to the Tom Swift stories published into the 1930s. See for Edward Sylvester Ellis's The Steam Man of the Prairies (1868), and the series on Frank Reade, Frank Reade, Jr., Tom Edison, Jr., and Tom Swift and their steam horse, steam train, electric boat, electric mule, airyacht, air frigate, and other technological wonders of the time.
