DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

Since the second book in the Blandings novels, Leave it to Psmith is the last in the Psmith series, one might consider reading the earlier books in the latter series before starting on the Blandings Castle series.The upper-class inhabitants of the fictional Blandings Castle, including the eccentric Lord Emsworth, obsessed by his prize-winning pig, the "Empress of Blandings", are the subject of eleven novels and nine short stories, written between 1915 and Wodehouse's death in 1975. This series crosses over with the Psmith series and the Uncle Fred series, and also introduces Monty Bodkin, a character who would feature in two further novels.The short stories have all been collected into Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best, but were also published first elsewhere in collections with non-Blandings stories.The short story collection Blandings and Elsewhere includes among its twelve stories six that take place before Summer Lightning, i.e.: "The Custody of the Pumpkin" "Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best" "Pig-hoo-o-o-o-ey""Company for Gertrude" "The Go-getter" "Lord Emsworth and the Girl Friend"In between Heavy Weather and Uncle Fred in the Springtime is the short story "The Crime Wave at Blandings," first published in Lord Emsworth and others.Between Full Moon and Pigs Have Wings is "Birth of a Salesman," first published in Nothing Serious ."Sticky Wicket at Blandings" takes place before Service with a Smile according to Wikipedia, although there is some debate about this, and was first published in Plum Pie.Blandings Castle series in WikipediaP.
