  • Avenarius' Stout Site is newly revised, redesigned, and expanded.  Don't miss this Slovakian site -- in perfect English.  Stop here for a priceless collection of some of Stout's other works of genius -- full text of non-Wolfe writings (from the "pulp fiction" days) and of the "Watson was a Woman" speech, and the audio (MP3 format) of the full audio of the "Information, Please" radio quiz show on which Rex Stout was a guest.  And LOTS of great links.  Of course, Montenegro is not so very far from Slovakia.
