The Amazing Ozmatron

My good friend Jericho Matt Bloom has been working on a little online Oz project on the side of his upcoming book, Nonestica: Rise of the Witches. This project is an online search engine of all of L. Frank Baum's Oz books and (soon) related public domain works. He calls it... The Ozmatron!

Right now, all 14 of Baum's Oz novels are available and searchable. In addition, you can read each book chapter by chapter, thus making this already a great database of the Oz texts.

Upcoming features...
  • Oz-related texts indexed and added (The Little Wizard Stories, Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz, Queen Zixi of Ix, etc.)

  • Complete sets of illustrations included in the texts with image searching available (The complete illustrations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and Ozma of Oz are already available for viewing at Bloom's mainsite, under the "Classic Oz" tab)

  • There will be links to download the books in PDF files hosted by

With this being said, get ready to add one of the great new Oz reference sites to your bookmarks or favorites!
