I may try this; I am rather fond of FLF. But despite the many times I've
read that FLF is a loose retelling of the _Wizard of Oz_, I don't buy it.
The only real Oz reference is the clown character singing a parody of the
song "If I only had a brain/heart/nerve" from the musical (movie) version.
Any other Oz resemblances are so vague as to have been lost on me so far.
And I have read FLF more than once.

Well, maybe next time... but not any time real soon.
