Hayden (haydenhsu) | 2 comments Agatha Christie had two separate works of the same title for "Death on the Nile". One was a 1933 lesser-known short story with Parker Pyne as the detective (also known as "A Death on the Nile" as there was only one death); the other, a 1937 longer and more well-known novel with Hercule Poirot (featuring multiple murders).

Can someone help separate these two different works?

Work 1. Short story with Parker Pyne (these two editions are both the same short story):
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
For reference: https://agathachristie.fandom.com/wik...

Work 2. Long novel with Hercule Poirot:
- https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio... (all of these editions except for the two listed previously)
- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... (currently featured edition)
For reference: https://agathachristie.fandom.com/wik...

Many thanks in advance.

There was already a Librarian Note (visible for Librarians on the combine page) saying not to combine them, but that was obviously ignored .

Hayden (haydenhsu) | 2 comments Thank you for separating out the short stories from the long novels and kudos on spotting the third edition of the short stories.
