Bibliography

I. The Detective and Mystery Fiction of Agatha Christie

This bibliography is divided into seven sections. Each of the first six presents the works featuring one of Agatha Christie's series detectives; the seventh presents works of mystery or detection not employing a series detective. All sections are arranged chronologically, with, where applicable, novels and short stories listed separately. As there have been so many editions of Christie's works, only the edition of a novel or collection of short stories used for this study is listed, with its original date of publication preceding it. Alternate titles of novels follow the entry in parentheses. Also, since the various groupings of short stories in collections overlap, only the collections and the specific stories from those collections used for the study are listed. Since only works of detective and mystery fiction are examined, Christie's six "Mary Westmacott" novels and her stories of the supernatural are omitted. For further information, one should consult Nancy Blue Wynne, An Agatha Christie Chronology (New York: Ace Books, 1976), which is the most nearly complete bibliography.
