The Anthony Monday series consists of four books written entirely by John Bellairs published between 1978 and 1992. The Treasure of Alpheus Winterborn, the first of these adventures, is the sole example of Bellairs' young adult output to not feature supernatural elements and is instead similar to a more straightforward mystery in the Hardy Boys vein.

Six years passed before another Anthony Monday adventure: in both The Dark Secret of Weatherend (1984) and The Lamp from the Warlock's Tomb (1988) Anthony was now fighting evil spirits and finding enchanted objects, much like Lewis Barnavelt had the decade before and the concurrent run of Johnny Dixon adventures.

Anthony returned only once more for 1992's posthumous The Mansion in the Mist.

No stories have been written in the series by Brad Strickland, although he has noted over the years that his story idea submissions to Dial often include six proposals: two for Johnny, two for Lewis, and two for Anthony.
