This page is a supplement to List of Oz books featuring published books, often by small publishing houses. Their "canonicity" is up to the individual reader, with some purists considering them apocryphal. As the Baum Oz books are in the public domain, no clearance needs to be obtained to write and publish fiction about the Oz characters, professionally or otherwise, making the question of canonicity somewhat subjective. Additionally, both of Jack Snow's Oz books are in the public domain in the United States, as are Ruth Plumly Thompson's The Royal Book of Oz, Kabumpo in Oz, The Wishing Horse of Oz, Captain Salt in Oz, Handy Mandy in Oz, The Silver Princess in Oz, and Ozoplaning with the Wizard of Oz, making the distinctive elements in those books usable as public domain content. The most dramatic changes in her books are in The Lost King of Oz and The Giant Horse of Oz, both of which remain protected under U.S. copyright law, and has rendered some known manuscripts unpublishable. The Oz books of John R. Neill, Rachel R. Cosgrove, and Eloise Jarvis McGraw and her daughter Lauren are all protected under U.S. copyright, making their characters and developments unusable by others without permission.

Note that there have been two books titled The Cloud King of Oz, one by March Laumer and Richard E. Blaine, and the other by Amanda Marie Buck.

Buckethead Enterprises of Oz/Tails of the Cowardly Lion and Friends[edit]

Buckethead Enterprises of Oz was begun by Chris Dulabone in 1986. It was operated as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to furthering interest in Oz, L. Frank Baum, and John R. Neill. The company was later reorganized under the name Tails of the Cowardly Lion and Friends. In terms of quantity of titles, they are the largest publisher of non-canon Oz books. The lists are in order by stock number and should not be interpreted as a continuous series for diegetic purposes.

Emerald City Press[edit]

Emerald City Press was an imprint of Books of Wonder. Unlike their facsimile editions of Baum's Oz books and other classics of children's literature, these are published through an independent arm rather than through William Morrow and Company. They also published The Emerald City Mirror as part of the now defunct Royal Club of Oz. Many of the stories in this were ghost written by David Hulan. Donald Abbott's work was featured prominently by Emerald City Press. He drew in the style of W.W. Denslow, and the books he wrote are all prequels to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and often incorporate elements from the 1902 musical extravaganza and other early Baum books like Father Goose. These books usually have no impact on the canon, the major exception being The Patchwork Bride of Oz, which depicts the wedding of the Scarecrow and the Patchwork Girl. How the Wizard Saved Oz is particularly inconsistent with the canonical account.

Random House's A Brand-New Oz Adventure series[edit]

Random House published a series of short Oz books for younger readers in 1985-1986. These books are all set prior to The Road to Oz and do not necessarily fit with canon books. For example, Dorothy being able to swim is an important plot point in Ozma and the Wayward Wand, yet in The Patchwork Girl of Oz, Dorothy states that she cannot swim. The book also gives Aunt Em the second name Glenda to tie her to Glinda. More problematic still is Dorothy and the Magic Belt, in which Mombi is turned into a baby and Aunt Em and Uncle Henry learn of the existence of Oz before they arrive there in The Emerald City of Oz. The books are in several cases not consistent with each other.

The first four books are illustrated by David Rose, the last by C.S. Ewing.

  1. Dorothy and the Magic Belt by Susan Saunders (1985)
  2. Dorothy and the Seven-Leaf Clover by Dorothy Haas (1985)
  3. Mister Tinker in Oz by James Howe (1985)
  4. Ozma and the Wayward Wand by Polly Berends (1985)
  5. Dorothy and Old King Crow by Dorothy Haas (1986)

Patchwork Press[edit]

Patchwork Press published later issues of Steve Ahlquist's Oz Squad comic book series. They have also published several Oz books by Peter Schulenberg:

  1. The UnWinged Monkey of Oz (2001)
  2. The Emerald Enchantress of Oz (2003)

by Alla T. Ford[edit]

by Mark E. Haas[edit]

Unlike most of the authors on this page, Mark Ellery Haas (1952–2007) asked for the blessing of The Baum Trust, and their lawyer threatened him, causing him to withdraw his first book after it was published when informed he had violated the copyright on The Giant Horse of Oz, in which his title character, Herby, first appeared. While Leprechauns in Oz was deemed legally acceptable, he was told he could not include "Founded on and Continuing the Famous Oz Stories by L. Frank Baum," which most of the books listed in this article carry on their title pages. Haas left behind a third book, published two years after his death.

by Robert A. Heinlein[edit]

Oz is briefly visited, and it's mostly as Baum wrote it, though it is explicitly stated that all sexuality is forbidden by order of Glinda.

by Philip John Lewin[edit]

by Onyx Madden[edit]

Onyx Madden was a pseudonym of James E. Nitch.

by Harry E. Mongold[edit]

by Hugh Pendexter III[edit]

by Nikki Kay Richardson[edit]

Uses original characters from Chris Dulabone's work. Oz is visited only briefly.

Alternate Oz[edit]

These original Oz books are difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile with the Famous Forty.

by David Anthony[edit]

Aware only of the MGM movie. Intended as a trilogy based directly on the author's own dreams.

by Frank Joslyn Baum[edit]

A "Big Little Book" written by Baum's son (credited as "Frank Baum") and published by Whitman Publishing. It had none of the characters from the official Oz books, though briefly mentioned the Wizard. Whitman quickly withdrew it after a lawsuit threat from Reilly & Lee. Books of Wonder announced a reprint with new illustrations, but it was withdrawn for legal reasons and all pre-orders refunded.

by Roger S. Baum[edit]

Roger Baum's books are generally written for a younger audience than his great-grandfather's. They also play fast and loose with continuity and never mention Princess Ozma. The backstory he establishes, as many of his books are prequels, often contradicts what we know about Oz from canon books. Often they are much easier to reconcile with the MGM movie, particularly Lion of Oz and the Badge of Courage. The major exception is Dorothy of Oz, which features a retcon about the Wicked Witch of the West having a magic wand, but in it, Dorothy meets Gayelette and Quelala, the couple who enslaved the Winged Monkeys to the Golden Cap in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

by L. Sprague de Camp[edit]

Depicts Ozma married to King Evardo and with a son.

by Philip José Farmer[edit]

Hank Stover, son of Dorothy Gale, pilots his plane to Oz in 1923.

by Martin Gardner[edit]

A seventeen year-old Dorothy visits the Great Outside World with her friends from the first Oz book. In addition to Dorothy being depicted much older than in the Oz books and the four portrayed primarily based on their MGM counterparts, it also contradicts The Lost King of Oz, in which Dorothy aged at an accelerated rate when she visited Hollywood, California.

  • Visitors from Oz: The Wild Adventures of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Woodman (St. Martin's Press, 1998)

by Dave Hardenbrook[edit]

Depicts a romance between Ozma and an American computer programmer named Dan Maryk. Also depicts the Three Adepts at Magic as grandchildren of Locasta and The Wizard.

by Stephen King[edit]

The characters visit an unpopulated version of the Emerald City, called the Green Palace. The Palace is a combination of the Emerald City from the 1939 film and the book, pulled from the protagonists' imaginations. The man sitting on the Wizard's throne turns out to be Marten Broadcloak, an alter-ego of one of the Dark Tower Series' main villains.

by March Laumer[edit]

Laumer's books typically make drastic changes and he even tried to end the Oz chronology in 2000. Controversial choices he made include marrying an adult Button-Bright to Glinda, implying sexual attraction to an unaged Dorothy Gale by both Ozma and the Shaggy Man, conflating the books of Alexander Melentyevich Volkov with Baum's, and having established characters make incontrovertible changes.

Listed in order of publication. Listed in in-universe chronology order on March Laumer.

by Gregory Maguire[edit]

by James A. Moore and Christopher Golden[edit]

by Romeo Muller[edit]

Based on his teleplay, which draws on elements from the first six Oz books without being consistent to any of them.

by Charles Phipps[edit]

Depicts a romance between Ozma and an American missionary named Milo Starling.

by Ken Roemer[edit]

A liberal translation of Alexander Melentyevich Volkov's Urfin Dzhus and His Wooden Soldiers

  • Dorothy and the Wooden Soldiers (Star Rover Press, 1987)

by Dev Ros[edit]

Among other things, depicts an origin for the Wicked Witch of the East and shows Glinda as a 9-year old in the 19th Century, though she is much older.

by Geoff Ryman[edit]

Employs the literary conceit that a Kansas girl named Dorothy existed and that, as a school teacher, L. Frank Baum made up the story of the first Oz book in order to amuse her. The novel takes place in the real world.

  • Was (Harper Collins, 1992)

by Jon Michael Suter[edit]

Suter published his books privately. Because he wrote them about real people in his life, he is reluctant to distribute them. [2] They are not currently available to the general public.

by Thomas L. Tedrow[edit]

This book, which ignores all Oz books except the first, is best known for its extremely negative reception among Oz fans.

by Joan D. Vinge[edit]

The book version of the 1985 movie Return to Oz, which is based on the second and third books, The Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz.

by John M. Weber[edit]

by Marv Wolfman[edit]

Written by Wolfman from a character, Doc Phoenix, and idea created by Ted White. Book designed by Byron Preiss, who also designed Sherwood Smith's Oz books. The Oz in this book is a distortion appearing in one of the character's minds, where, for example, the Shaggy Man is a killer.

by Chris J. Wright[edit]

Based on the MGM movie—the Scarecrow has a diploma rather than bran and needle brains.
