Revision as of 13:43, 13 August 2015

This FAQ only covers the main points about Oz. Much more information is available from these resources, many of which were consulted during the compilation of this FAQ. Anyone looking for more detailed information is encouraged to seek out some of these books, magazines, and videos. (Those seeking out even more resources, especially newspaper, magazine, and journal articles, should check out the bibliographies of these books, notably Hearn's Critical Heritage edition of The Wizard of Oz.) The bibliography is divided into general categories.
