The Oz Books

From Academic Kids

A series of books, starting with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, dealing with the "history" of the Land of Oz.

The first fourteen books by the original author, L. Frank Baum, another nineteen books by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and another seven books by various authors comprise the "Famous Forty", which is considered the classic original series (though inconsistencies make it difficult to call it canonical). Most of the books in the "Famous Forty" were published by Reilly and Britton, later Reilly and Lee. Other books were printed later, by different publishing houses. As the earlier works have fallen out of copyright (including all of L. Frank Baum's titles), numerous other books have been written in the series by many authors and publishers, some of whom continue to publish new works today.

In fact, so many additional Oz books have been written, that merely attempting to document all such books is a weighty endeavor in and of itself (see Outside links). Some small publishers have even specialised in publishing Oz pastiches, of which the most commercial are probably Books of Wonder, Hungry Tiger Press, and The International Wizard of Oz Club - and perhaps the graphic novels of Eric Shanower. There are also alternative series of Oz books, such as the sequels written in Russian by Alexander Volkov, or the books of Frank Baum's great-grandson, Roger S. Baum. Then there are the "revisionist" books of Gregory Maguire. The following list therefore contains only Oz books written by the authors of the first "Famous Forty" (including those published in later years).
