Congrats!

This also reminded me that I'd not downloaded the audio production. Which will now be done in, oh, fifteen seconds. :)

When you mentioned the story before, I meant to ask — have you read any of the other Wodehouse/Lovecraft admixtures? I know of two — Peter Cannon's Pulptime and Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier. I've read the former (which I liked, mostly), but I've not read the latter.

I didn't even know that there were other similar mashups until I had already sold the story. I did a google search and found that there was a long history of these things. I have read the Alan Moore one, and I enjoyed it. I'm glad I didn't do a straight parody, but rather made my own variations on Jeeves and Wooster -- a little more freedom.
