HarperCollins Launches Agatha Christie Ebooks

Posted on September 17, 2003

HarperCollins Publishers Perfect Bound division and Agatha Christie Limited, a Chorion company, have announced a program for the publication in ebook format of 85 works by Agatha Christie. The program will include Agatha Christie's classic mysteries that feature Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple, and such genre-defining crime titles as And Then There Were None.

Each title contains special ebook features that are not available in any print edition. They Came to Baghdad, for example, contains the lengthy essay 'Agatha Christie in Baghdad,' the author's own account -- taken from her autobiography -- of her many years in Baghdad and the Middle East as tourist, occasional archaeologist and resident, and where she wrote some of her most important works.

They Came to Baghdad

Hercule Poirot was first introduced to readers in Christie's first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.
