Ozzy Birthday to You!

This fine August 15th gets a second blog post to celebrate the birthdays of two of the original Royal Historians of Oz.

Jack Snow was born on August 15, 1907. He was of course the author of The Magical Mimics in Oz (1946), The Shaggy Man of Oz (1949), and Who's Who in Oz (1954). He also wrote many short stories for magazine Weird Tales and there are two collections of his short stories: Dark Music (1947) and, from Hungry Tiger Press,  Spectral Snow (1996).

Lauren Lynn McGraw was born on August 15, 1944. She is the co-author of both Merry Go Round in Oz (1963) and The Forbidden Fountain of Oz (1980). In recent decades she has been primarily a Fine Artist living and working under her new name Inanna McGraw. You can see some of her work at her website. You can also read the first three chapters from her uncompleted mystery novel Death by Dingbats in our free on-line Tiger Tales - Click here.
