Rex Stout – From Wikipedia

Rex Stout – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rex Todhunter Stout (December 1, 1886 – October 27, 1975) was an American writer best known as the creator of the larger-than-life fictional detective Nero Wolfe, described by reviewer Will Cuppy as “that Falstaff of detectives.”

Another link to a Wikipedia article. This one on Rex Stout. Fairly extensive and has some information I haven’t seen before. Quite a few links to other articles, both on and off the Wikipedia site.

I especially like the “Stout and the FBI” section, one snippet taken from Herbert Mitgang’s book “Dangerous Dossiers” is quoted below:

J. Edgar Hoover himself and the FBI’s powerful publicity machine came down hard on Stout in 1965 when his novel, The Doorbell Rang, was published by the Viking Press. About one hundred pages in Stout’s file are devoted to this novel, the FBI’s panicky response to it, and the attempt to retaliate against the author for writing it.

Sounds a lot like the FBI that Stout wrote about in “The Doorbell Rang, doesn’t it? Good read!

Nero Wolfe – From Wikipedia

Nero Wolfe – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nero Wolfe is a fictional detective, created by the American mystery writer Rex Stout, who made his debut in 1934. Wolfe’s assistant Archie Goodwin recorded the cases of the detective genius in 33 novels and 39 short stories from the 1930s to the 1970s, with most of them set in New York City. The Nero Wolfe corpus was nominated Best Mystery Series of the Century at Bouchercon 2000, the world’s largest mystery convention, and Rex Stout was nominated Best Mystery Writer of the Century.

Just found this page on Wikipedia about Wolfe. Quite an extensive piece and well worth reading for anyone interested in the Nero Wolfe books or television series.
