So many good writers have been influenced by P.G. Wodehouse!

I recently discovered Rex Stout & he and P.G. admired one-another. I've seen passages in their works where you wonder who was echoing who - was Bertie Wooster channeling Archie Goodwin or Archie channeling Bertie, or both?

I was really delighted by the Nero Wolfe books/stories, notwithstanding some aspects that wouldn't pass today. (You can laugh at Archie's constant evaluations of women being a matter of age and beauty, or be offended. Since Archie's overall heart is always in the right place, I choose to laugh. Etc.)

But there are other greater luminaries who pay homage to Wodehouse as well.
