There is a new magazine, only for people in the UK, and it's from Chlorion.
I sw this advertised. It comes shortly after the complete collection of Christie's crime writing. (Which I got)
If the collection had been all of the characters, Poirot and especially Miss Marple I would probably have followed on with this, But just having Poirot means...to me at least, that theres something missing.
I would agree - - I've always enoyed the Marple stories. I haven't sided one way or the other (between Marple or Poirot) but, I believe Marple is a requirement.
There is also the thought that I can't help thinking that it's just money maker, and before long, we'll have to 'Complete' Marple series, entwined with the new stuff that they seem intent in telling us has just been updated rather than completely rewritten.
They're rewriting Christie??!! Oh no! Granted, I have not read her in a long time, although I have tons of her books, but I can't imagine them changing in any way. I can't think of a good reason for it.
Matthew is trying to make money, so he's let "Them" do whatever they want. In the new Marples, they've given Miss Marple a beau shot in the war years ago (and she gets all weepy about it from what I remember). They've changed killers (I think), and they've changed genders of characters. They've also put Marple in Ordeal By Innocence, The Sittaford Mystery, By the Pricking (She FORCES Tommy and Tuppence to find Aunt Ada's murderer!!) and Towards Zero!!!!
So one can only imagine what they'll do with the printed page :(
Can you tell this bothers me just a smidge??
Just a bit...
Some things I honestly don't mind... but some things, lately especially changes of who the actual murderer is and for want of a better word "s3xing" it up drive me to distraction...
I would definitely have to bypass these. I don't like the sounds of them whatsoever.
