We are pleased to announce that we have published the 6th book in the Wizard of Oz series: The Emerald City of Oz
. It includes all of the original illustrations (over 100) by John R. Neill. DRM-free.
Here is an excerpt from the all new preface by Oz expert and Eltanin editor J.C. Nusbaum:
" L. Frank Baum pulled out all the stops for his sixth and, what he believed was to be the final, Oz book, The Emerald City of Oz.

Baum also elevates this Oz book beyond the constructs of a direct and simple narrative; for the first time, he constructs two parallel storylines that follow the protagonists (Dorothy, the Wizard and a host of favorite traveling companions) as well as the Nome King and his brood of antagonists on two separate journeys where both parties encounter a range of mystifying populations. ..."
