Oz Universe
Written in 1973. Only published in 2005 after its rediscovery in Philip José Farmer's archives. Farmer had fond memories of L. Frank Baum's Oz series of books, which shows in some of his works, as it does in this story.
DESCRIPTION:
An alternate view in the world of The Wizard of Oz. Not a story for the young ones, but an adult view through the eyes of the scarecrow. The witch is dead and chaos is ruling. The scarecrow, the lion, the tin man, and Twinkletoes – calling themselves The Unnaturals – have to fight for their lives.
