The Land of Oz: Decades before Dorothy. The Orphan Sorceress of Oz introduced Glinda as the headstrong ruler of the South. Dark Dreams in Oz challenged her ability to command, and Dark Wind in Oz challenged her determination as she became Protector of Oz. However, her crusade failed and drove the Wizard from the light back into the dark. In madness, the Wizard hides in exile, leaving the throne of Emerald City empty. Magic and mayhem, dreams and defiance, secrets and sacrifice, all define this new age in the Land of Oz. SHE WILL WIN HIS SOUL, IF IT TAKES A LIFETIME. Beyond the shadows of the Emerald City, the world continues, and Glinda defends the Wizard’s legacy through wisdom by her rule, through courage by the strength of her sword, and through strength by the power of her sorcery. Every year she writes a letter to the Wizard, Oscar Diggs, and begs him to claim his rightful place. Every year she receives silence. Decades drop away, and generations fade into forgetfulness. The true identity of the Wizard is lost to all save a few, until only the legend remains. Glinda wages war in the Wizard’s name, but bloody battlefields only bury the dead. The dark and silent night stretches a day into a year into a lifetime. Her hidden fear finds a new face as the Wizard finally opens his door… Glinda’s Letters to Oz is an epistolary novel that provides a long view of Oz history, connecting the Hidden History of Oz to the classic series created by L. Frank Baum.
