 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.

"This is, first and foremost, an anthology of horror stories. And readers looking for something different in a horror collection, a collection that achieves this not only through the unique background of Oz but through a variety of tales and story modes, will find a sinister pleasure in these excursions over the rainbow."

--M-BRANE SF

 "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

 "JW Schnarr hit it out of the park with this collect of macabre, dirty, perverse, corrupted stories. I have never paused while reading to say, That is so f'd up! so many times before while reading an anthology. And I meant in the nicest way possible. Though, nice is not a word to be used with this anthology...ever. 5/5"

--Jennifer Brozek, Apex Book Company

 "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

"...a breath of fresh air into the horror genre that goes back a hundred years to find the most underutilized creatures in the genre. This is definitely a book to round out any horror library..."

--Gregory Micheals, www.bravebluemice.com

Note: This digital edition includes the ePub and PDF versions of the book.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
