I LOVE Oz! I have all 40 of the books. Most folks do not know it was a series that spanned the first half of the 20th Century.
(Incidentally, the slippers were silver...not ruby..MGM made them red for the color film)

Good one ej_the_dj!

To kittriana; L Frank Baum wrote 14 Oz stories before he passed away. His last book was published a few months after he died. Ruth Plumley Thompson picked up the mantle and wrote a great number, Jack Snow wrote 3 and the last author's name escapes me at the moment. John R. Neill illustrated all but a handful of the books and his Art Nouveau pen and ink drawings are synonymous with the series.

Goodness, I never knew L. Frank Baum wrote so many Oz stories... I'm ashamed because I'm an "oldtimer" and I read a lot of books! (I know the electronic books are great but I guess I still have one foot in the pre-electronic age...! I like the real ones.) Now I have to search for them! Ooh, treasure hunt!

I was going to make a comment to the effect: "Well, Dorothy had her poppy field..." but Kittriana kind of blew it out of the water! ;-)

Thanks Kittriana... interesting we both thought of Oz comments, huh? (I was going to submit mine before I read all the comments, then saw your excellent one.)

And thanks Melody, for the link. I've already checked it out and bookmarked it. Kind of reminds me of the Star Trek books... so many authors picked up the mantle after James Blish no longer wrote them (can't really remember but I think the poor soul died). I recently had the pleasure of reliving old childhood memories of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Tarzan" and "John Carter of Mars" series (along with the Venusian stories, etc., etc.) and supplemented my John Carter books with some I didn't have copies of (thanks to Amazon.com). I'll be looking to get some of the Oz books, too (if they're not out of print).

No, they're not out of print and even the antique originals can be picked up on Ebay for reasonable prices (for almost 100 year old books) if you're not picky about a child writing their name or coloring with crayon in them. I've managed to put together a full set...I already had the 14 'white cover editions' that were published in the early 1960's, and it took me about 3 years to get the rest (the 'fab 40' as Oz fans call them)
