Illegal zombies are infesting the west at an increasing, and concerning, rate. Government official, "Zombie-Killer Bill" is summoned to the Hansen Ranch where Legal zombies have been butchered, and "bits" have been stolen.
With an unlikely side-kick, Bill has to find out who is murdering Legal & Slave zombies and bring them to justice without coming face to face with his own bitter and illegal past.
But like all fairy tales, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has one foot planted in the fantastic, and the other foot planted in blood. Explore the darker side of Oz...the parts too terrifying or obscene to be told as bedtime stories.
Here are 19 tales by some of today's hottest Indie writers peeling back the emerald layers of the land of Oz and revealing the pink, bloody flesh beneath. Some of the people and places you may recognize from your childhood, but you won't believe what happens to them.
Shadows DO fall in the Emerald City, and where they are their darkest is where you will find the true terror of Oz.

This is, first and foremost, an anthology of horror stories. And readers looking for something different in a horror collection, a collection that achieves this not only through the unique background of Oz but through a variety of tales and story modes, will find a sinister pleasure in these excursions over the rainbow.
Shadows of the Emerald City, JW Schnarr’s 19-story anthology about the dark side of Oz, offers a sense of Oz’s continuing expansiveness as well as a satisfying number of characters that yearn to be part of the enchanted land.

JW Schnarr hit it out of the park with this collect of macabre, dirty, perverse, corrupted stories. I have never paused while reading to say, “That is so f’d up!” so many times before while reading an anthology. And I meant in the nicest way possible. Though, nice is not a word to be used with this anthology—ever. 5/5
--Jennifer Brozek, Apex Book Company
The bloodstained yellow brick road begins and ends somewhere close to the concrete of Calgary, Alberta! Definitely a solid collection that reminds you that there is a lot more than ooze and awe's in the Scary old land of Oz.
