Right Ho, Jeeves #3

Right Ho, Jeeves #3: Bertie at Bay is now available in Kindle format.

BERTIE AT BAY is the third issue in the RIGHT HO, JEEVES series, which tells of the travails of the inimitable Bertie Wooster, summoned from the comforts of #3A Berkley Mansions, London to Brinkley Manor by his imperious Aunt Dahlia. Love is in the air and Wodehousian shenanigans are afoot, as Wooster's well-meaning attempts to help out his friends sort out their romantic difficulties only leads to one hilarious disaster after another.

Adapted from the classic Wodehouse novel by comics legend Chuck Dixon and drawn by SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN illustrator Gary Kwapisz, BERTIE AT BAY is issue #3 of 6 in the RIGHT HO, JEEVES series

But that is not all. There is more good news on the Castalia front. Both Hitler in Hell and The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon are now available in paperback editions. The former is 472 pages in our standard demi-octavo size, the latter is 550 pages in royal octavo. Due to our desire to keep them under the $19.99 price point on Amazon and the discount structure required to do that, both books are slightly more expensive on the Castalia Direct Store.

We do our best to keep our prices down and are continuing our efforts in that vein. This sometimes leads to anomalies, such as the $3 comic price and the occasional higher price on the direct store.

Hitler in Hell was outstanding. Interesting and informative.

Hmm. I could have sworn that #2 was Kindle Unlimited, as I read it on my wife's tablet, and she's the one with the Kindle Unlimited account, but none of the three are showing as Kindle Unlimited now. Oh well, I'll pick it up when I have time.

Amazon decided that the series cannot qualify for Kindle Unlimited, due to the fact that the original novel is not public domain outside the USA.

Ah, that explains it. Thanks, Vox. I was beginning to think my memory was getting worse than usual. :)

Will the 6-issue set be available in a physical omnibus once complete?

Yes, it will be released in a larger 10x7 size in trade paperback.

I presume this is typical; also RDR and Chicago Typewriter and other future works.

Can't help but notice how heavily Gamma so many of the characters are. I suppose that's part of the comedy: how Gammas constantly get into trouble.

Just for an example, for a while I was wondering whether Bertie was more Delta or Gamma, but considering he has a knack for screwing things up and is only able to win the interest of women that he doesn't want... I decided Gamma.

This makes me suspect that P.G. Wodehouse himself was Gamma since so many of his characters were.

IMO, one of his more interesting characters is Gussie Fink-Nottle, who I'd say is a Gamma's attempt at writing an Omega-to-Sigma transitioner.
