BY DICK MARTIN
"The Ozmapolitan of Oz" (1986, IWOC)

"Although it really does not deal much with Oz as we know it, I consider
Frank J. Baum's _Laughing Dragon of Oz_ enough of a curiosity (and a most
famous one) to warrant mention."

"RPT's _Captain Santa_ may belong in the closely related category;
debatable. Didn't she also write and "unfinished" tale that was included
in _Wizard of Way Up_? It's been a long time since I read that."
