Inspired by the works of L. Frank Baum, 'The Terrible Zombie of Oz' (a mash-up of the first book of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) invites the reader to see the original Land of Oz in a new light, in which Dorothy is carried by a great Cyclops to the Land of the Feast where the Munchbrains live, accidentally killing the Wicked Witch who has kept them in bondage for so long. And makes new friends as she tries to find a way back home, including a Cowardly Lion with a bell on, a Tin Woodman and his enchanted axe, and a Scarecrow obsessed with braiiiins... But never fear. This is not your traditional 'zombie tale' full only of bone-crunching, neck-nibbling sideshows for the sake of creative special effects using jelly and old ladies' pantyhose. (Plenty of room for those in the sequel). "The Terrible Zombie of Oz" is a more cerebral mystery to be unravelled, wherein the sentiment of Mr. Baum is preserved, along with all of the, er, violence that was included in the original.
