"Barnstormer in Oz" is the late Philip Jose Farmer's fascinating take on the magical land. Farmer does some revisionist history--it's as if the Wonderful Wizard of Oz never had any sequels. The Scarecrow still reigns in the Emerald City, Glinda the Good is again battling an evil witch. Oz is on the verge of civil war. Into the story flies Hank Stover, Dorothy Gale's son. He finds out he is in a parallel universe. He marries and impregnates one woman while romancing Glinda on the side. Their passionate love affair sets the stage for crucial events. "Barnstormer" is a unique contribution to the Oz canon. Farmer attempts some scientific explanations for talking animals, sentient objects, and whether there was reproduction in that magical land. It stands out as one of Farmer's most accessible books. Philip Jose Farmer will be remembered as a revolutionary science fiction author.
