Why isn't the collection, "Hercule Poirot's Casebook", Putnam, 1984, listed here? It contains 50 stories.

Dating of 'Market Basing Mystery' appearance in print ambiguous (talk) 04:37, 18 March 2013 (UTC) "On occasion, besides the reprinted material these collections have sometimes contained the first book printing of an individual story - e.g. The Market Basing Mystery in the UK version of Thirteen for Luck! (1966) which later appeared in the same market in Poirot's Early Cases."

-- This probably refers to the situation in the UK only, and therefore is somewhat misleading. I have a US paperback print of the same title, "13 for Luck" which is marked as First Dell Printing, February 1965, and this already contains 'The Market Basing Mystery'. And according to bibliographical information the story was already contained in the first US hardcover edition from 1961 too, as well as a full decade earlier in the 1951 compilation 'The Under Dog and other stories'. If anyone wants to edit the article accordingly, please do so.

Stafford Nye

According to the list, Stafford Nye is the detective of Passenger to Frankfurt. I read the book. It is full of long dialogs. I didn't find any investigation, clue or brain work. Besides Nye is the most ignorant of all characters. How can he be called detective ? Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 12:43, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Short stories were not originally published by collections, so why are they listed by collection?

I think the entire collections section needs removal and reworking. The original publication dates and where published, need to be listed instead. Collections or omnibus books can have another section, but under the named collection, not each short story. If necessary, the short story section can be in a table, which can also include a collections field, and there the collection name can be listed. That makes much more sense. I will be happy to work on that. It's located here. I'll remove the user page link, when I'm done. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 16:49, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

I also posted another entry on another talk page that further explains the problem. You can find that here. MagnoliaSouth (talk) 18:35, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
