Alan, Trio contains Kill Now - Pay Later; Murder Is Corny and Blood Will Tell.

BTW, have you checked

for the ones you don'w own? You can find lots of out-of-print mysteries, and a vast range of prices...

Hey! I used to be a big Rex Stout reader, and I'm racking my brains to remember which Nero Wolfe books were set in advertising agencies. If anyone could help me out and post the answer here I'd surely appreciate it. -- Thanks!

Tara: The only one I can think of offhand is Before Midnight.

Answer to Tara R. question: Does anyone remember which Nero Wolfe books were set in advertising agencies?"

I think the two books you're thinking of are And Be a Villain and Before Midnight.

Does anyone know what happened to Robert Goldsborough? His last Nero Wolfe was published in 1994. I'm eager for more.

I have collected and read all of the Nero Wolfe Mysteries. I am short hardcover editions of The Red Box, Fer-de-Lance, Where There's A Will, and Death Times Three. I am also interested in all the other Stout books not Wolfe. Hardcover only. Any for sale out there? Arguably the best mystery writer ever.

Bonita, July is a little way from today. However I do not see an answer - I believe the book you may have missed is the last one Robert Goldsbourgh (sp) wrote. He wrote 7 and did not renew his contract with the Stout Foundation. It is called "The Missing or Last Chapter" (sorry I just can not remember the one word in the title) after reading that book, and I nearly missed it myself when it did come out and of course looked for more myself. However after coming to know that he would not write any more, and I believe he had some problem with the Foundation - hold on now I know this is going for either a few or many to read and someone may say, I am wrong. However this info does come from someone who knows. Rob. G. just was not anxious to sign on again. So now we "reread" and "reread". Fortunately there are many books to of Nero Wolfe to reread. Secondly I have several other mystery authors and their series to keep me busy. Yet I do go back and read about Nero every so once in a while.

Hello all. This list seems not to have had any postings for nearly a year, so I'll re-open discussion with a puzzling question. For those of you who own (or think you might own) an authentic First Edition of Trouble in Triplicate, please post information about the binding (colour of cloth, if quarter-bound, colour of print), and the number of pages. There is some discrepency amongst the copies offered for sale through ABE, AddALL, and ebay auctions as to binding and number of pages of books, all offered as Firsts! If you prefer, you may email me at, and I will post the results. To be an authentic FE, the copyright page shoud show a Library of Congress card catalog number, and near the title page there should be a page listing Other Books By Rex Stout.

*sniff* No first editions of Stout here. Just a fan who finally found this folder. :o) *wondering if Eeva found this*
