What I find most delightful about Agatha Christie is that now, thirty-four years after her death, her work is being adapted for graphic novels. Harper Collins started the adaptations in 2006, and nineteen of her novels have been issued in this form. As a collector of Tintin and Asterix stories, I look forward to tracking down one of Agatha Christie's mysteries.
In honor of her birthday, the BBC released a web-based archive. The archive contains audio interviews dating back to 1955. Listen as she explains how she became a novelist.
Delicious Death. You can find the recipe here. The recipe was inspired by a Miss Marple mystery, A Murder is Announced.
Her web site is filled with interesting content. Be sure to check out the blog for stories from her grandson. Could you imagine sitting around the fire, trying to guess "who-dun-it" with your grandmother, Agatha? The entire site is so entertaining, I'm kicking myself for not finding it until now.
And although I missed the big 120th birthday festival, the English Riveria beckons to me. This web site offers advice on sites, lodging, and activities. I can dream of a mystery writers conference in Torquay, can't I?
