Lord Emsworth and Others

Lord Emsworth and Others is a collection of nine short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the UK on March 19 1937 by Herbert Jenkins, London. The U.S. equivalent was published with a rather different content on June 25 1937 by Doubleday Doran, New York, under the title Crime Wave at Blandings. Penguin Books published an edition in 1966. The stories had all previously appeared in periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic.

As well as the Blandings Castle-set titular story, it also contains stories about Mr Mulliner, Oldest Member golf, Drones Club member Freddie Widgeon, and Ukridge.

In their place were "Tried in the Furnace" (from the UK edition of Young Men in Spats), and "All's Well With Bingo" and "Romance at Droitgate Spa" (both in the UK Eggs, Beans, and Crumpets), as well as the novella The Medicine Girl, published separately in the UK as Doctor Sally (1932).
