Rex Stout

Well, Nero Wolfe, of course, really. Characters are more important than authors, aren't they?

To avoid losing track of it, and to let me work on my own detail improvements, I'm including a bibliography assembled from what I can find.


Stories, arranged by date, with information on collections containing them. Not very complete.
