Characters include the Woozy, Ojo "the Unlucky", Unc Nunkie, Dr. Pipt, Scraps (the patchwork girl), and others. The book was first published on July 1, 1913, with illustrations by John R. Neill. In 1914, Baum adapted the book to film through his "Oz Film Manufacturing Company."In the previous Oz book, The Emerald City of Oz, magic was used to isolate Oz from all contact with the outside world. Baum did this to end the Oz series, but was forced to restart the series with this book due to financial hardship. In the prologue, he reconciles Oz's isolation with the appearance of a new Oz book by explaining that he contacted Dorothy in Oz via wireless telegraphy, and she obtained Ozma's permission to tell Baum this story.

Working as a biscuit-shooter, Nell falls for a cowboy named Buddy. She sees a future together, but she can’t help wondering if his feelings for her are true. When Buddy breaks her heart, she runs away. In her search for a soul mate, Nell will run away from marriage twice more before finding the love of her life.

1939. After the sudden and tragic loss of her husband, Helen is returning home to her mother’s house in Biggin Hill, Kent – the one place she vowed she’d never go back to again. Alone and not knowing where to turn, Helen finds herself joining the local women’s sewing circle despite being hopeless with a needle and thread. These resourceful women can not only make do and mend clothes, quilts and woolly hats, but their friendship mends something deeper in Helen too.

The investigating officer on the case, Richard, will leave no stone unturned, but it’s not long before his interest in Helen goes beyond the professional. As she pieces together old fabrics into a beautiful quilt, will Helen patch up the rifts in her own life? The Patchwork Girls by Elaine Everest is a moving story about the ties of friends and family, set during the turbulence of the Second World War.

Book Summary:

An exercise in reclaiming electronic literary works on inaccessible platforms, examining four works as both artifacts and operations. Many pioneering works of electronic literature are now largely inaccessible because of changes in hardware, software, and platforms. The virtual disappearance of these works—created on floppy disks, in Apple's defunct HyperCard, and on other early systems and platforms—not only puts important electronic literary work out of reach but also signals the fragility of most works of culture in the digital age. In response, Dene Grigar and Stuart Moulthrop have been working to document and preserve electronic literature, work that has culminated in the Pathfinders project and its series of “Traversals”—video and audio recordings of demonstrations performed on historically appropriate platforms, with participation and commentary by the authors of the works. In Traversals, Moulthrop and Grigar mine this material to examine four influential early works: Judy Malloy's Uncle Roger (1986), John McDaid's Uncle Buddy's Phantom Funhouse (1993), Shelley Jackson's Patchwork Girl (1995) and Bill Bly's We Descend (1997), offering “deep readings” that consider the works as both literary artifacts and computational constructs. For each work, Moulthrop and Grigar explore the interplay between the text's material circumstances and the patterns of meaning it engages and creates, paying attention both to specificities of media and purposes of expression.

Book Summary:

The Tin Woodsman of Oz (1918), a bestseller upon its publication, was a welcome victory for its author L. Frank Baum. After nearly a decade of declining book sales, the twelfth book in Baum’s Land of Oz series—and the last to be published in his lifetime—was a critical and commercial success that reinvigorated public interest in his iconic work. In the safety of his palace in Winkie Country—where he was made Emperor after the Wizard of Oz gave him a heart—the Tin Woodman exchanges nostalgic tales of the old days with his friend the Scarecrow. When a wanderer named Woot suddenly appears, he asks the Tin Woodman how he came to be made of Tin. This sparks the memory of his love for the Munchkin maiden Nimmie Amee, which, aided by the pointed questions of Woot, encourages the Tin Woodman to risk everything he has gained for the only thing he ever truly wanted. Traveling into Gillikin Country, the trio encounters the Loons of Loonville and fall captive to the giantess of Yoop Valley, who transforms them into animals. Narrowly managing to escape—and taking with them the young fairy Polychrome—the group will need the help of Dorothy and Princess Ozma to restore them to their true forms. As The Tin Woodsman of Oz reaches its conclusion, the Tin Woodsman must face the truth of his origin, learning about the nature of love, and himself, in the process. From the mind of master fantasist L. Frank Baum, The Tin Woodsman of Oz is a story of love, friendship, and the will for adventure. Long overshadowed by the film, Baum’s series is required reading for children, adults, and anyone who refuses to let life lose its flavor of fantasy. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of L. Frank Baum’s The Tin Woodsman of Oz is a classic of children’s literature reimagined for modern readers.

Yet for all his efforts, he still finds himself estranged from his wealthy, philanthropic family, his ex-wife, and his mouthy nine-year-old daughter, Opal.

With the chips down, can he still get his life together before it falls apart again?

Good news for those who found themselves missing the original heroine of Oz in the second book because in ‘Ozma of Oz’ (1907), Dorothy is back! Traveling to Australia with her uncle, Dorothy is once again caught up in a natural disaster – a huge storm at sea that separates her from her uncle. She washes ashore in the land of Ev, a fairyland that has recently lost its royal family, and Dorothy is once more entangled in the conflicts of a foreign place. Not everything is new however, as Dorothy unites with old friends and places. Along with the previous novel in the Oz series, ‘Ozma of Oz’ was adapted into a movie, ‘Return to Oz’ in 1985, featuring Fairuza Balk as Dorothy. L. Frank Baum (1956-1919) was an American author, actor, and filmmaker best known for his children’s books, particularly ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ (1900) and its thirteen sequels. He started writing young and created a journal with his brother, which they handed out for free.

Book Summary:

 Toys—those celebrated childhood cohorts and lead actors in children’s imaginative play—have a fantastic history of heroism in fiction. From teddy bears that guard sleeping babies to plastic soldiers and cowboys who lay siege to wooden block castles, toys are often the heroes of the stories children inspire authors to tell. In this collection of new essays, scholars from a great range of disciplines examine fictional toys as protectors of the children they love, as heroes of their own stories, and as champions for the greater good in the writings of A.A. Milne, Hans Christian Andersen, William Joyce, John Lasseter and many others.

Book Summary:

Reading Westworld is the first volume to explore the cultural, textual and theoretical significance of the hugely successful HBO TV series Westworld. The essays engage in a series of original enquiries into the central themes of the series including conceptions of the human and posthuman, American history, gaming, memory, surveillance, AI, feminism, imperialism, free will and contemporary capitalism. In its varied critical engagements with the genre, narratives and contexts of Westworld, this volume explores the show’s wider and deeper meanings and the questions it poses, as well considering how Westworld reflects on the ethical implications of artificial life and technological innovation for our own futurity. With critical essays that draw on the interdisciplinary strengths and productive intersections of media, cultural and literary studies, Reading Westworld seeks to respond to the show’s fundamental question; “Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?” It will be of interest to students, academics and general readers seeking to engage with Westworld and the far-reaching questions it poses about our current engagements with technology.
