Vasa and Ypres started as a challenge. A challenge to write a novel. A challenge to publish a fictional serial on a blog before it became an ebook, and then a paperback book. Most of all, it was a challenge to make a world of British humour come alive.

For that, I found inspiration in the comic genius of P.G. Wodehouse. The basis was simple. Jeeves and Wooster would become Vasa and Ypres. Chaps would become girls. Aunts would become uncles. The 20th century would make way to the 21rst. The rest, made up as I went along, became Vasa and Ypres: A Mayfair Conundrum.

Vasa and Ypres’s is a world where all complexities and worries are pushed aside. The major problems of our time do not appear. As the forever stylish Vanessa E. Vasa says in the final chapter of A Mayfair Conundrum, “I don’t deal with world hunger do I? I deal with conundrums. Preferably Mayfair conundrums.” This fictional world is a form of escapism.

Vasa and Ypres is a work of fiction. It is satire, and, hopefully, it is fun. Follow Vasa and Ypres as they engage in new and excitingly British adventures from Mayfair to Manhattan.

Chapters are published on Sundays.

  1. Dear Author (aka J.B. Chisholm):
    This Vasanista is suffering from covert fatigue. (Or, is the appropriate word covid?) Levity must prevail!
    Do tell, if Amtrak trippers cleared the Canadian border without incident.
    With utmost adjuration,

  3. thank you for the “like” on my post (“The Odyssey”). I read P.G. Wodehouse’s stories years ago, and although I’ve forgotten the details, I remember enjoying the humor. Best of luck in writing your own books.

  4. Greetings great writers and best of everything to you! I would absolutely love, love to see all of ‘this’ on stage in the theatre, the lovely theatre! I shall follow you as I did enjoy very much what I have read so far. A word of thanks as well for visiting lotus4me.blog and liking my most recent post, “What’s For Breakfast?”

    I do hope you’ll return in the near future and do comment some feedback for me, that would be 😊 Looking forward to more reading and writing!
