REVIEW: Tor.com

Tor.com reviews Oz Reimagined: “Oz Reimagined is, admittedly, a more adult take on the source material, building on a century of sequels, spinoffs, reimaginings and illegitimate literary offspring, but it’s a heck of a read. If The Wizard of Oz is a book for children, Oz Reimagined is the book for when children grow up. ”

It mentions “the magnificence of this anthology,” and among other individual compliments, it cites Theodora Goss’s tale as “a strong story, well-suited for the anthology’s mission,” and Jonathan Maberry’s story as “brilliantly whimsical.”  [review]
