Glinda of Oz

From the diary: “March 7, 1981


PS.!! I’m still reading Glinda of Oz!! Okay?!! Yes!!!!”

Glinda of Oz was the last of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books, the last of his books period. Glinda was published after Baum’s death. In some ways it’s an early science fiction story. A domed city sinks beneath the surface of a lake to protect it from outsiders. Although the mechanism is activated by magic syllables the setting is more sci-fi than fairy.
