I love it when things work out :D Former Kansas girls FTW!

I actually haven't read any of the RPT books, so all I know about them is what I've gleaned from the fandom. But I did finally track down all the Baum books (thank you, Project Gutenberg!), and definitely still enjoy them as an adult - continuity holes and all.

And, yeah, I didn't much care for the Wicked books (though I like the musical). On the other hand, I feel like most fan-written Oz books try too hard to be pastiches of Baum's style. What I wanted to do here was come up with a version of Oz where sex (not to mention GLBTQness) existed and was acknowledged, without throwing away the books' essential innocence in the process.

Thanks for reading, and I'm really glad you liked it!
