    The Del Sol Press Pinky Swear for "American Oz Maker"







    About "Piper Robbin and the American Oz Maker"

    "Jaded sci-fi and fantasy readers should flock to this fearlessly inventive narrative... "
    - Kirkus Reviews


    AN ADULT FANTASY FOR THE DARK CHILD IN US ALL
    May the best evil win.

    It is the end of history, the end of sanity, and for those who survive, the end of life as they know it. After a magical alien hostile falls to Earth and proceeds to play cat-and-mouse with human life, the 21st century's greatest sorcerers create a network of seven Oz-like city worlds designed to harbor the human race in a newly formed utopia while also protecting it from the alien entity. But the alien is far more magically powerful than anyone suspected. Piper Robbin, ancient daughter of the Earth's greatest sorcerer inventor, Edison Godfellow, must sacrifice all to defeat the implacable force that calls itself "The Witch Queen of Oz," and quickly, before Earth becomes only a cold cinder floating among the stars.

    Piper Robbin sets a whole new standard of WTF in fantasy. Imagine the best sex scene you've ever read in American or British SFF, then inject hyperbolic steroids with a dash of anti-gravity, methane ocean, and a few million star sprinkles. Upon this 80th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz, Piper Robbin and the American Oz Maker officially joins the "heretical apocrypha of Oz." In other words, a work of imaginative fiction borrowing heavily from Oz, but not subject to the confines and strictures of Oz canon.

    This science-fantasy by Warwick Gleeson features three of the most protean and uniquely flawed heroes ever forged in 21st century speculative fiction, and too, a villain that makes Voldemort look like Tinkerbell. As a boldly original adult fantasy, it takes one of world's favorite tales and transforms it into a dark and epic landscape few can escape much less understand.


    THE LAST ONE TO GO WILL SEE THE FIRST 76,984 GO BEFORE HER.
