I just saw a few of them in my local bookstore. they were in the YOUNG ADULT section. However, they dropped the "Indiana Jones and the..." from the titles and they have new cover art WITHOUT INDIANA JONES!!!

I remember seeing "Cult of the Mummy's Crypt", "Ape Slaves of Howling Island", "Curse of Horror Island", and a couple of others. they were more of the horror oriented ones, and were an obvious attempt to cash in on RL Stine's recent success with the Goosebumps series. The only indication I found of Indy was a small circular picture on the back with his face.

Anyway, I find it rather deceitful, marketing them like they are new books, but if you don't have any of them, pick them up and check them out. They're not bad.
