AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
Is a detective fiction novel by Agatha Christie, first published in the United Kingdom by the Collins Crime Club on 6 November 1939under the title Ten Little Niggers. Then the title was changed in January of 1940 Ten Little Indians, as the original title, which originally derived from antiquated English terminology, is considered racist by modern standards.
The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence and the U.S. edition at $2.00.It was republished in May 2001, by St Martin’s Paperback Editions as And Then There Were None, due to the controversy over the former title. The novel was made into several films.
