Collections of short stories

Main article: List of short stories by Agatha Christie
In addition to her 66 mystery novels, Christie published 153 short stories in her career. Almost all of these were
written for publication in fiction magazines with over half of them first appearing in the 1920s. They were then
published in book form in various collections, some of which were identical in the UK and US (e.g. The Labours of
Hercules) and others where publication took place in one market but not the other.

Agatha Christie bibliography

Twelve of the stories which were published in The Sketch magazine in 1924 under the sub-heading of The Man who
was No. 4 were joined in one continuous narrative in the novel The Big Four in 1927. Four other stories, "The
Submarine Plans" (1923), "Christmas Adventure" (1923), "The Mystery of the Baghdad Chest" (1932) and "The
Second Gong" (1932), were expanded into longer narratives by Christie (respectively The Incredible Theft, The
Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, The Mystery of the Spanish Chest and Dead Man's Mirror, although the shorter
versions of all four have also been published in the UK).
Only one short story remains unpublished in the UK in book form: "Three Blind Mice" (1948), on which Christie
placed a moratorium whilst the stage play based on the story, The Mousetrap, was still running in the West End.
Prior to this the story was published in four instalments in the weekly magazine Woman's Own in the issues dated 31
December 1948 to 21 January 1949 with illustrations by K. J. Petts.
In the US, "Christmas Adventure" is the only story unpublished. The longer version "Adventure of the Christmas
Pudding", which is based on "Christmas Adventure", can be found in Double Sin and Other Stories under the name
"The Theft of the Royal Ruby".
The main collections in both markets are:

Agatha Christie bibliography

In addition, various collections have been published over the years which re-print short stories which have
previously appeared in other collections e.g. Surprise, Surprise! (1965 in the US). On occasion, besides the
reprinted material these collections have sometimes contained the first book printing of an individual story e.g. The
Market Basing Mystery in the UK version of Thirteen for Luck! (1966) which later appeared in the same market in
Poirot's Early Cases.
