(From Joss' own Wodehouse Collection)



Books / Bibliography




Here I will be presenting my own overview of the multitude of books and stories by Wodehouse which have given
me and millions of others through several generations so much pleasure. In the meantime you can get a good
overview by following the links below.

The number of publications are subject to debate, mostly because some stories was published in serveral editions
or in different antologies, but mostly the number will be in the range 90-95, i.e almost one for every year he lived.

In addition there have been published numerous books about Wodehouse and his long and productive career,
as well as books of facts, literary studies, new antologies etc.

These in themselves will give you a certain vision of how popular Wodehouse have been, and the influence
he both had and still has on so many.

In 2015 Everyman's Library completed their publishing of his books in a series of bound editions
of high quality and uniform design. A full listing can be found on their website,
where you also may subscribe to news and buy the new books as they are published.

Their goal iwas that the collection shouldl include alle official editions/books, including his autobiographies.
A similar collection is pubished by The Overlook Press in the US, with it's own listing at their website.

These and other new editions are also available through many websites and stores, and the older editions can be
bought in second hand books stores and through many different websites and online dealers.
You can do a Google search, or you can use AbeBooks.com, a resource for international dealers.

Plum's own comment on his feelings for this long lasting saga:
"You tell yourself that you can take Jeeves stories or leave them alone,
that one more can't possibly hurt you, because you know you can pull up
whenever you feel like it, but it is merely wish-full thinking.
The craving has gripped you and there is no resisting it."

"For Mr. Wodehouse there has been no fall of Man; no "aboriginal calamity." His characters have never
tasted the forbidden fruit. They are still in Eden. The gardens of Blandings Castle are that original garden
from which we are all exiled.
... Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity
that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in."

Evelyn Waugh (1961)

And that is the spirit in which the content of this page aspires to be presented.
