I’ve made a very quick eBook of My Man Jeeves, by P. G. Wodehouse, from someone else’s .lit edition. I don’t know whose else’s, but they did a very nice job with emdashes, smart quotes, a table of contents.
I did some extra formatting, demarking a title page, a new table of contents (slightly nicer formatting, and now also specific TOC guide), and cleaned up the metadata (author should be last-name, first-name middle-name honorifics, in order to alphabetize correctly by author in Mobipocket-compatible browsers).
Copyright information: no copyright in the US, but copyright elsewhere is possible. Please check the laws of your country before downloading this.
My Man Jeeves has most of the stories from the newer Carry On, Jeeves (which I ranted about here), except for “Bertie Changes His Mind”. Which is a shame, because a story narrated by Jeeves is a unique item in the Jeeves canon.
Anyways, here’s the file, to download if your country allows you to:
Go ye and enjoy the language of P. G. Wodehouse, a true master of humorous fiction. Douglas Adams himself enjoyed Wodehouse, as does Neil Gaiman; as far as I’m concerned, Wodehouse enjoys honorary Science Fiction & Fantasy status here at Spontaneous Derivation.
There’s more of Wodehouse over at Project Gutenberg, though many of the files are not formatted with, say, a hyper-linked table-of-contents and reflowable text.
Anyways, now I feel better about the travesty that is Jeeves and Friends, retold by Clare West.
