Author Rex Stout first introduced his private detective Nero Wolfe in 1934's . The larger-than-life protagonist stands today as one of the most cherished sleuths of the mystery game. Wolfe, and his confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, appeared in dozens of novels, novellas, and short stories penned by Stout. And while Stout is no longer with us, the author's literary creation lives on. Bestselling mystery authors like Robert Goldsborough and Lawrence Block have crafted their own Nero Wolfe mysteries, continuing Stout's literary legacy and inviting a new generation of readers into Wolfe's world.
Clearly, Nero Wolfe still captivates readers and writers alike. Case in point? Last month's The Misadventures of Nero Wolfe, a new collection of two dozen stories that feature the great detective of West 35th Street and his Man Friday. Edited by Josh Pachter, this "superb anthology" pays tribute to the legendary literary sleuth, and will "appeal to Stout devotees and more casual fans alike" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
