Hit or Miss

Nero Wolfe

Nero Wolfe. I’ve wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of Rex Stout‘s work, but I’ve enjoyed the stories I’ve read in Ellery Queen over the years. But the new A and E series is very stylish and quite enjoyable. The presence of the delicious Debra Monk in the pilot certainly didn’t hurt. Catch the show on Sunday nights and thank me Monday morning.

Speaking of Ellery Queen, I’m sad there isn’t more on the web about Edward D. Hoch, one of the magazine’s most prolific writers and creator of some of my favorite series detectives, including Nick Velvet.
