And Then There Were None. Some of Agatha
Christie's best and most famous mysteries featured characters other
than Marple or Poirot.
13 Problems is also The Tuesday Club Murders
Ah well in that case, I have it, and don't have to look for it. LOL! This title changing does throw me at time ;o)
I Knew that but what is it another name for it? I mean what was it's original title or other title for it
I might jump in here if I can.... Bob, I think Thirteen For Luck is a US only collection of short stories, mostly from earlier publications. I know it's not available in Australia but by looking at the story titles in Missy's list I recognise several of them that are included in other publications in my collection....
I'm sure one or two of the Marple stories were actually from The Thirteen Problems (aka The Tuesday Club Murders) published around 1932.
A couple of the Poirot's were early stories that subsequently appeared in Poirot's Early Cases published in 1974.
I'm fairly sure both of the Quin stories were originally in The Mysterious Mr Quin (1930)
The two Pyne stories, The Regatta Mystery and Problem At Pollensa Bay are exceptions in that they weren't published in Australia until 1997 when the collection, self-titled the latter story above, was released here. Not sure what occurred elsewhere though.
And the last story that Missy has listed, Accident, was from either The Hound Of Death (1933) or The Listerdale Mystery (1934), both collections themselves. (This one, incidentally, I found to be a particularly spooky story.)
Whew, got all that outta the way.... Anyway, I'm fairly sure Thirteen For Luck was US only. That might explain why you haven't heard of it, Dee (you are in the UK, aren't you?) If anybody can dispute any of my ramblings, please, feel free to make me look silly :-p I enjoy it anyway...
Andrew, Yep I'm in the UK. Which may explain why I have a book called
"Problem at Pollensa Bay and other stories."
A new collection from the unidsputed queen of crime.
Can't fault the last bit, but the first bit is off. LOL!
Thank goodness for The New Bedside, Bathtub & Armchair Companion. I really need a new copy of this (I think they have some on Amazon). My copy is getting pretty tattered.
'Accident' is from "The Listerdale Mystery" (1934). Also in this one are:
The Listerdale Mystery
The Girl in the Train
Sing a Song of Sixpence
The Manhood of Edward Robinson
Jane in Search of a Job
A Fruitful Sunday
Mr. Eastwood's Adventure (or The Mystery of the Spanish Shawl)
The Golden Ball
The Heron Books were published in England so DeeGee have you heard of them and if so what is the other title of 13 for luck?
In the US, 13 for luck was advertised as a collection of stories especially for young readers. I don't know how they set up deciding that, but that's what I remember.
Bob heard of them, and found a link for someone selling them, but as to your question, sorry no idea, I have the Tuesday night club, and the thirteen problems in my collection. Hope this helps.
