Just read this little blurb in the 9/22 issue of Publisher's Weekly:


The U.K. based Chorion is weighing new book projects following the discovery of 13.5 hours of unknown audio recordings by Agatha Christie. Chorion oversees the Christie estate; it had been shopping for a new publisher for Christie's autobiography, published by Penguinbut now out of print, before the discovery of the tapes was announced. Chorion will be at the Frankfort Book Fair gauging interest in the Christie material.


So, unclear if the tapes are something to enhance a new publicaton of her autobiography or possibly new novels. But, either  way it could be interesting down the road.

I think it was Agatha Christie that got me rehooked on reading mysteries as an adult, which led me to The Christie Caper by Carolyn Hart, and then other cozies. Of course, I should note that it was a box of old (circa 1940s) box of Nancy Drew books in my grandmother's sun parlor that got my initially hooked when I was 9-10. (The woman who was head of the family that ran the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys dynasy) lived in our town and I one time knocked on her door, not realizing that "Carolyn Keene" was not a real person, because I wanted an autograph.
