First I've heard of your Archie. As a fan of Rex Stout's Archie I'm looking forward to reading your collection.

Dave Zeltserman said...

Thanks, Tony. My goal in writing my Julius Katz stories is to try to make them as fun as the Nero Wolfe works that I love so much, with much of the humor coming from the relationship between Julius and my Archie. The first four stories in the series have so won a Shamus, Derringer, and two Ellery Queen Readers Choice Awards, and the series has also been endorsed by the Wolfe Pack, so other Nero Wolfe fans have been enjoying these stories also.

You're gonna make me break down and get a Kindle or something...!

My next Julius Katz novella, Julius Accuse, will be in the upcoming June issue of Ellery Queen so you can read it in print then! The first two are in the best of the year mystery anthologies that Ed Gorman and Marty Greenberg put out, and you can probably find those in your local library. So no need to get a kindle just yet...
