From Dorothy and Toto to the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion, the characters of The Wizard of Oz are an indelible part of the western imagination. And judging by the warm reception enjoyed by Oz the Great and Powerful, James Franco’s Oz may soon be joining that cherished pantheon.

But few of us have enjoyed the novels in which these characters first appeared. Now in the public domain, the entire amazing fourteen book series by L. Frank Baum is available for free—that’s right: FREE—at Project Gutenberg!

This week, Isotropic Fiction invites you to discover a world created over a hundred years ago so full of magic you might never want to leave.
