Shadows of the Emerald City at DriveThruHorror.com

Posted on December 16, 2009 by Flames

No other story has touched as many hearts and endeared itself into the American fabric as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Often toted as America’s First Fairy Tale, this heartwarming classic has been made and remade again and again across every medium known to man. The themes are timeless, the characters themselves beloved.

But like all fairy tales, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has one foot planted in the fantastic, and the other foot planted in blood. Explore the darker side of Oz…the parts too terrifying or obscene to be told as bedtime stories.

Here are 19 tales by some of today’s hottest Indie writers peeling back the emerald layers of the land of Oz and revealing the pink, bloody flesh beneath. Some of the people and places you may recognize from your childhood, but you won’t believe what happens to them.

Shadows DO fall in the Emerald City, and where they are their darkest is where you will find the true terror of Oz.

Shadows of the Emerald City is now available at DriveThruHorror.com.

“Shadows of the Emerald City, JW Schnarr’s 19-story anthology about the dark side of Oz, offers a sense of Oz’s continuing expansiveness as well as a satisfying number of characters that yearn to be part of the enchanted land.” –Senses Five Press

“The bloodstained yellow brick road begins and ends somewhere close to the concrete of Calgary, Alberta! Definitely a solid collection that reminds you that there is a lot more than ooze and awe’s in the Scary old land of Oz.” –Steve Vernon, Author of Maritime Monsters
