Absolutely loved them. One of my favorite forms of humor (he said, playfully).

Memo to self: sober up before taking another of these WP's

Just when you think they've run out of Swifties along comes this batch, one of the cleverest yet

Enjoyed it. Can do these from now on.

Wasted a letter to imagine a non-word whose root I had well in hand. Maybe they're permitted in such a puzzle.

Editor, please advise.

Most enjoyable; you've inspired me to put together a set, he said composedly.

Editors, perhaps I was not clear.

Is Tom Swift allowed to speak non-words?

Because "disorientedly" is not a word of the English language.

Tom Swift may do whatever the heck he wants, she declared unrestrainedly.

Collioure, I'm not an editor, but I can tell you that the 1979 Ahus, Sweden Convention of the IAS (International Association of Swiftyists) ruled that non-words are absolutely allowed. The only exceptions are:

Brucely
Brendaly
Peggyly
Janetly
Christopherly
Spikely
Harperly
and

I was unconvinced by dumbfoundedly but it would not occur to me to grumble at it.
in the context of Tom Swiftys I think you are supposed to work such things out?

We had dumbfoundedly. Once the D was up, it was an of course that's the word! Enjoyed the WP.
