Oz

Post  pinhedz on Sat Jun 29, 2013 8:35 am

Pinhedz dad read all those Frank L. Baum books back during the prohibition era, so when the pinhed came along (planned or unplanned) he read them too.

Now I have the 4 volumes written by a certain Gregory McGuire (who I suspect is not from Kansas).

Is this kids' stuff, or OK for grownups?

I just finished McGuire's 4-volume opus.

Oz seems to be about the known world back when the Celts were battling the Round-heads, or something like that.

McGuire has General Jinjur get killed, in fact lots and lots of Round-heads and Celts get killed.

In Frank Baum's books no one gets killed:

duuhh, all the books are flimsy allegories for the Black Friday gold panic, the New York custom house ring, the Star Route postal ring, the salary grab scandal, the Sanborn affair, the Delano affair, the Pratt & Boyd affair, and the whiskey ring incident.
