Wodehouse for the Weekend!

Our beloved Collector's Wodehouse series continues to delight PGW fans all over the world. The series continues to grow with five new titles to be published by the end of 2010. Coming soon are Service with a Smile and The Pothunters, followed later in the year by A Pelican at Blandings, A Prefect's Uncle, and Eggs, Beans and Crumpets.

These Wodehouse works offer almost everything a reader could ask for: sharply drawn characters, intriguing stories, and exquisite prose. Each volume has been reset and printed on Scottish cream-wove, acid free paper, sewn and bound in cloth. They are elegant and essential additions to any Wodehouse fan's library. They are brilliant gifts for friends or family, or simply to indulge oneself!

"His novels are the very definition of British humor, bubblingly witty and dryly loony. Overlook Press continues its reissue of a handful of these absurd souffls. You can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose." Entertainment Weekly

"When Overlook Press repackaged a line of titles by the British humorist P.G. Wodehouse, the house devoted great attention to producing high-quality editions of the bookswhich feature full cloth covers and beautiful, striped endpapers." -Publishers Weekly

P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was born in Surrey, educated in London, and spent much of his life in Southampton, Long Island, becoming an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books, twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.

How many more books/collections etc will there be before this is finished? I have a couple of pretty shelves, and I like the idea of getting more, but I just thought about that today: what happens when there are no more Collector's Wodehouse to buy? Heh.
