Archies Acquired

Thanks to blogger Les Blatt, we learn that the New York City-based Wolfe Pack, a fan organization devoted to Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe tales, last night gave out its biennial Archie Awards for lifetime achievement. Blatt writes, in Classic Mysteries, that “three (four, actually) authors were named as Archie Award recipients: Dashiell Hammett, Robert B. Parker, and both halves of Ellery Queen (Frederick Dannay and Manfred B. Lee). We think Archie Goodwin would have approved.”

It’s hard to argue with that.
