Some years ago, Nero Wolfe aficionados formed "The Wolfe Pack" in New York City. This book's prefix was written by the organization's founding president.

The Wolfe Pack produces writings, essays and other items about Rex Stout and his fictional family. This book is the first collection of these essays, and they are outstanding. They start off with Jacque Barzun, the dean of American criticism, and go on to many other well-informed, funny and insightful opinions, observations and haggling about Nero, his assistant, and just about anything else of interest to die-hard Wolfe fans.

And the book was released AFTER the end of the A&E series, which was an incredibly important contribution to the literature of Nero and Archie.

I loved this book and hope you do, too.

I had re-read Archie Goodwin files a week ago, and thought I'd bite the bullet for this book. It offers lovely insight into Rex Stout, and into the Wolfe Pack. But it doesn't include any fiction. The AG files book includes some fan fiction, which I found immensely enjoyable. This book, the NW files, isn't a bad book; just realize what you are getting.

Back in the 1970, fans of the Nero Wolfe stories by Rex Stout joined together and formed an organization called The Wolfe Pack to celebrate the author and his world famous detective (and not to forget Archie Goodwin!). They started publishing a quarterly journal called The Gazette and held a formal dinner every year, among other activities. In this book Marvin Kaye has collected items originally published in The Gazette. They range in diversity from the menu of the first "Black Orchid" dinner to texts of speeches given at the dinners to articles about Wolfe and Stout by Stout's biographer, plus many other interesting tidbits.

Unfortunately this book feels rather underdeveloped for the price. While most of the items included are interesting to some degree, there is not enough content to really satisfy a fan or to engage a casual reader. It is certainly recommended to those who are Nero Wolfe fans, or aspire to that status, but I would suggest that you try to find it at a cheaper price than the listed $15.95.

This book is a compilation of some of the best articles , etc from a fan magazine devoted to Rex Stout & Nero Wolfe. It doesn't contain any new mysteries or even pastiches. It does have some wonderful stories about corresponding and meeting with the author, fun tales about meetings, and info on menus and recipes. Not to mention a few nifty poems.

If you are a super Nero Wolfe fan, then you'll enjoy this. Otherwise, skip it.

Mr. Kaye offers us more selections from "The Gazette". Although slimmer the the Archie book it still contains many articles of interest to fans.
