New Oz Tales

 

The Royal Publisher of Oz is happy to present exclusive, new and/or rare Oz stories for your enjoyment 

 

The following are in harmony with the Sovereign Sixty and the

stories found on the mainline timeline of The Royal Timeline of Oz. 

 

The Great Jinjin Epilogue

by Melody Grandy

 

Melody Grandy's short "The Great Jinjin Epilogue" is the conclusion to the story "The Great Jinjin" published in Oziana 2001 (and The Seven Blue Mountains of Oz: Book 3: Zim Greenleaf of Oz). Originally available on the Nonestica Yahoo online forum, it's now featured here.

How The Adventurers Returned Home

by Jared Davis

 

Ever wonder how the characters from the Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz strips got back home? Wonder no more.  In Jared Davis' "How The Adventurers Returned Home," the conclusion to the Baum newspaper strips is finally told!

Prelude

by Jeff Rester

 

A tale of remorse and madness, Jeff Rester's "Prelude" is a chilling lead-in to a much longer forthcoming work, Death Comes to Oz, that reveals the heretofore untold story of a certain character from Baum's books who chose not to stay in Oz!

 

Reddy and Willing: The Adventures of Jair

by Nathan M. DeHoff

 

Like Brownies, the Reddies were a race of diminutive peoples first told about in Jack Pumpkinhead in Oz.  How they later became human-sized is told for the first time here, as well as the story of the fourth sister of Blinkie and the Jinxland witches!

Revolt of the Scalawagons

by Nathan M. DeHoff

 

When the sapient cars called Scalawagons start acting strangely, the Wizard goes to investigate, only to discover the Emerald City surrounded, and a sinister mind behind the Scalawagons' revolt.

 

Ruggedo and the School of Magic

by Nathan M. Dehoff

 

How did the Nome King Ruggedo regain his magical powers? And how did the Magic Belt regain its power over wood?  These questions and more are answered in this story that takes place after The Emerald City of Oz.

The Triumph of the Wicked Witch of the West

by Nathan M. DeHoff

 

Not all is good and green in the aftermath of Lurline's enchantment of Oz, as the Wicked Witch of the West begins blazing a path through the Winkie Country consolidating power.

 

The Wizard of Aurissau

by Nathan M. DeHoff

 

When the Wizard departs Oz by balloon on that fateful day Dorothy was left behind, he didn't quite make it back to Omaha.  This new story shows what happened when he came crashing down in Aurissa in Nonestica.

 

The following are parodies or humor pieces

 

The Evil Author of Oz, by Aaron Solomon Adelman

The wickedly funny "The Evil Author of Oz" shows what happens when author and Oz fan Aaron Solomon Adelman attempts to rewrite Oz history in his image!  And scroll down for a "lost" fit from The Hunting of the Snark

 

The Broker's Mistake is a poem that shows what might be the back-story of a certain animal-character in Oz.

 

Muppets in Oz, by Richard Paul Smyers

In Richard Paul Smyers' Muppets in Oz, (no relation to the TV-movie with Ashanti), Jim Henson's creation comes to Oz.  See if you can figure out who the special guest star is that Ozma whipped up for the show.

 

Note: Two of the novellas originally available here have since been published in book form. You can find Time Travelers in Oz by Paul Dana, the sequel The Lost Boy of Oz, a formerly unpublished sequel and a new short story in the book The Law of Oz and Other Stories (available for purchase here!)
