I am trying to identify a book or series of books, probably 60's or 70's in date. All dealt with "accelerated men" who were faster and smarter, but only under certain conditions. I can't remember more than that other than that it was pulp style science fiction and I am sure there were a series of books all dealing with the same central character.

  • Much more specific info will be required to have any chance of an id. – Organic Marble Jan 7 '17 at 17:41

  • Sueelleker. I say put it down as an answer. If nothing else, if someone else looks for "accelerated men" or "boosted men", it will come up in search results. – FuzzyBoots Jan 7 '17 at 19:14
  • Tully Zetford was a pen name of Kenneth Bulmer - fantasticfiction.com/b/kenneth-bulmer the Amazon reviews confirm (to me) that this is indeed the "Hook" series. – Paulie_D Jan 7 '17 at 23:45
