Three words: buy this book. (I already have.)
Now, here’s why:
There are a bunch of new Oz-related novels out right now. But Polychrome is that rarity among homages to the classics, a novel that’s both wholly faithful to the spirit of its source material and striking in its willingness to look beyond that canon. It isn’t satire or allegory or re-imagining or reboot, nor is it even simply a sequel. It’s a straight-ahead, freshly conceived extrapolation from L. Frank Baum’s original series, possibly even a book Baum might have written were he reincarnated into the 21st century.
It’s a book both for devoted Oz enthusiasts and newcomers to Oz. Detail-minded fans will find Spoor’s scholarship impeccable, with characters and settings drawn from bone-deep knowledge of the source material. Yet even those who’ve never read the original series can easily follow alongside mortal hero Erik Medon, who finds himself unexpectedly drafted by the titular Rainbow’s Daughter to save not just Oz, but all of fairyland from a genuinely cataclysmic threat.
Spoor’s prose style is modern, displaying deft genre awareness and deviously clever plotting. In some respects, Polychrome is as much a descendant of The Princess Bride as it is of the Baum canon. But above all, it’s an utterly engaging read. It’s a very rare novel that can make me laugh aloud, shiver, and go all misty-eyed in the space of a few chapters, but Polychrome did and does. There is a new Royal Historian of Oz in town, and his name is Ryk E. Spoor.
