Does anyone here have any information on the collaboration that Nero Wolfe author Rex Stout discussed with James Bond creator Ian Fleming? I think this is a fascinating topic. Here is a quopte from,

William S. Baring-Gould's forward to "Nero Wolfe of West Thirty-Fifth Street":

"Stout considers the late Ian Fleming to have been a good storyteller too, but he turned down Fleming's suggestion that M, James Bond, Nero Wolfe, and Archie Goodwin should all appear together in the same novel. "Bond would have gotten all the girls," Stout admits ruefully".

Anyone got any more information on this collaboration that was discussed?

What do you think of the 'Nero Wofe' series, and also the Bond novels?
