Poirot may be on his final episodes, but he is not quite done yet. In what is set to be the first “Agatha Christie” title in 38 years, HarperCollins's William Morrow has signed a new Hercule Poirot story with the blessing of the Christie estate. The book is to be written by Sophie Hannah and currently remains untitled.
The question here is, can we expect the floodgates to open on Poirot pastiches? Can we get a modern take on the mustachioed sleuth a la Sherlock? What about a steampunk retelling? Or Hercule Poirot vs Dracula? I for one am holding out hope for more Hercule video games. Seriously, though, are you ready for more Poirot in print?
