Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English author of comic short stories and novels, best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle series. Widely considered a master of prose in the English language, the prolific author was admired by fellow contemporary authors such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and modern authors such as Douglas Adams, J.K. Rowling and John le Carre. His writing style is known for mixing London clubroom slang with more elegant English. Wodehouse was passionate about golf, which is the subject of many of his stories (such as The Oldest Member), where all of the characters are consumed by the sport.

P.G. Wodehouse became a published author in 1902 with the novel The Pothunters. His final completed novel was Aunts Aren’t Gentlemen (aka The Cat-Nappers). Wodehouse passed away while writing Sunset at Blandings, which was finished and published in 1977. Below is a list of P.G. Wodehouse’s books in order of when they were originally published (as well as in chronological order when necessary):

    Several books in different series are dated as published well after his death in 1975, i. e Imperial Landing (1992), Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best,(2001), and others. How is this possible? Was their an anonymous author? the 2013 publication Jeeves and the Wedding Bells (2013) identifies Sebastian Faulks as the author.

    Can you explain?

      They were published posthumously.
