There are rumblings of discontent and accusations of attempts at industrial land grabs in the mix.
Those familiar with both Oz and Otherworld will most appreciate this story. However, unfamiliarity with Otherworld does not detract from the tale. Dorothy is an elderly woman, confined to a wheelchair, and deposited in a nursing home too far away for her children to visit.
One day, after enduring hair care from someone whose name Dorothy does not remember, she has a dream of returning to Oz. Astute readers will notice something here that will give away the ending. For optimal enjoyment, pay more attention to the story than to the details.
This reimagining has cyborgs and technomages. Tin Man is one of the former, and Dorothy, after killing the Wicked Witch of the West, becomes one of the latter.

In the midst of being murdered by chimeras, Tin Man shows another side of himself—an aesthete who can appreciate beauty even in those who are killing him. He also discovers, through Dorothy, that the Wizard is a charlatan who cannot grant wishes.
Beneath all its technological and magical trappings, this is a love story. The tale is set in a mental institution. Tin, Crow, and Roar are some of the characters.

She gets swept up in student demonstrations and transported from her home in the Veiled Shanghai to another Shanghai that is similar to, but not quite, her home. Following the Ozian plot, most of the people she meets—including the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Lion—are either tied to or touched by the political unrest.
The overlay is well done and includes all the salient bits while remaining an entertaining story rather than an educational lecture. WISH is reality television, Oz style.
