Morrow Unveils Agatha Christie Collection

HarperCollins's William Morrow imprint has acquired world English rights to an as-yet-untitled new Agatha Christie short story collection, to be written by a collection of international authors and coedited by Julia Elliott in the U.S. and Anna Herve in the U.K. The deal was struck with Agatha Christie Ltd., and the book will be fully authorized by the author's estate. Set for a simultaneous release in the U.S. and U.K., in September 2022, the book will contain 12 original stories featuring Christie's detective Miss Marple, who was first introduced to readers in a 1927 short story. Morrow said: "Each author included in the new publication will reimagine Christie’s Marple through their own unique perspective while staying true to the hallmarks of a traditional mystery." Among the authors contributing to the collection are Leigh Bardugo, Karen M. McManus, Kate Mosse, and Ruth Ware.
