In addition to the regular titles, Arrow, W. W. Norton, and Random House (Hutchinson) publish omnibus collections of PGW's books and stories. They also sell legitimate electronic copies for use with modern devices such as ebook readers, mobile phones, laptops etc.
Be cautious about purchasing books and e-books from unknown publishers; many quickly-produced editions are derived from public domain Internet sources such as Project Gutenberg texts. Many of these are published without careful editing or proofreading. Purchasing these benefits neither the reader nor the Wodehouse estate, and their distribution outside the USA is generally not legal anyway.
Piracy is a crime which impacts everyone. With the loss of appropriate revenue both the publishers who print the books and the authors who create them will be adversely affected, and ultimately, the consumer will be affected due to dearth of creativity.
We are pleased to offer the public domain (in the United States) materials on this site in the hope that it will inspire people to seek out other Wodehouse books. We in no way encourage breaking the copyright laws of any country.
Please do contact your local booksellers, or the online retailers who serve your particular country, and keep buying real books!
