The stories are set in three primary locations: London, where Bertie has a flat and is a member of the raucous Drones Club ; various stately homes in the English countryside, most commonly Totleigh Towers or Brinkley Court ; or New York City and a few other locations in the United States. All take place in a timeless world based on an idealised vision of England before World War II, essentially the same world found in the fiction of Wodehouse's near-contemporary, Agatha Christie. Most of the Jeeves stories were originally published as magazine pieces before being collected into books, although 11 of the short stories were reworked and divided into 18 chapters to make an episodic semi-novel called The Inimitable Jeeves.
Other collections, most notably The World of Jeeves , restore these to their original form of 11 distinct stories. The collection The World of Jeeves first published in , reprinted in contains all of the Jeeves short stories with the exception of "Extricating Young Gussie" presented more or less in narrative chronological order. An efficient method of reading the entire Jeeves canon is to read The World of Jeeves followed by the eleven novels in order of publication. The novels share a certain amount of sequential narrative development between them, and the later novels are essentially sequels to the earlier ones.
