Piper Robbin and the American Oz Maker
by Warwick Gleeson


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE:  Fantasy (Epic)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

WORLD WAR OZ from coast to coast.

An adult fantasy that takes one of America's favorite tales and transforms it into a dark and epic landscape few can escape much less understand. Imagine Potter meets Avengers in Emerald city and you're getting close.
After a homicidal alien from Orion arrives on Earth intent on annihilating 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.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPT:

PIPER ROBBIN WAS HELPLESS. WORLD WAR OZ had exploded up and down the Pacific Coast following the dramatic ejaculation of Pentagon armor, Deplorables, and tripods from the Mojave base. Nothing could stop it. Given the prevalence of strong EMP deployment on both sides, nearly the entire western U.S. remained immune to virtually any type of destructive or useful Tao wavelength, magic or no. Thus the New Humanity Fleet, the Shadow Broker mages, the Dio Soldati brigades, and other magi-tech combat units were severely hand tied.

A grim reality faced the forces of Oz.
The Witch Queen was winning.
     
The U.S. Army, prodded by her phony Galaxians, pursued Oz and Martian “sympathizers,” while California, deemed a hive of rabid discontent, became a primary target for retaliation. Several million human beings from Sonoma Valley in the north to San Diego in the south were potentially at the mercy of rampaging war machines and flocks of Deplorables wielding blades. The east coast too was in flames, the Atlantic surf red with blood down to South Carolina.

AUTHOR Interview:

Can you describe your dream home?
A home with high ceilings and huge windows overlooking a body of water...

If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?
Beef stroganoff and asparagus.

Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.
Hmmm, well, it simply and delightfully proved I could communicate to an intelligent reader what I’d been attempting to communicate with subtle motifs and character reaction, i.e., that human utopia is 99% impossible, or cannot be established without terrible cost.

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
Istanbul! I’d also settle for Crete. Barcelona wouldn’t be too disappointing, and neither would Thailand.

Who designed the book cover for the book you are touring?
A fantastic SFF artist named Scott Richards designed the centerpiece graphic of the new Emerald City looming over Manhattan.
