Seven of the pieces were previously printed in the annual issues of Oz-story Magazine. "Dorothy and the Mushroom Queen" was printed under the pseudonym "Janet Deschman." "The Ballon-Girl of Oz" appeared under the pen name "Stephen Kane."
The story "The Silver Jug" was originally published in an unfinished form, as part of a contest: entrants provided their own conclusions to the story. Two winning entries, written by Margaret Berg and Frederick E. Otto, appeared in Oziana in 1994.
