I love Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books. However, I've read some of his stories that don't feature Archie and Nero, and I found them to be distinctly mediocre.

You have to read Bimbos of the Death Sun by Sharon MacCrumb, if you can find it, especially if you are an SF fan. It's dated, but it's still good.

I loved the Dream Park series by Larry Niven, but you'll find them in the SF section, as Niven is primarily an SF writer who uses mysteries and puzzles in his stories. I'm re-reading Flatlander, which is a series of short stories about a detective in the future.
