This is a short story I wrote a long time ago. My apologies to Frank L Baum for the use of the flying monkey, etc.
@JessicaRydill Hi Jessica. Similar ideas to the world and magic of 'Transgressions', but not part of that story arc. Of course Wamzut found a different way to prolong his life ;-)
Is this part of the complex of stories about Wamzut?
The end took me by surprise - it's really sad! I was always scared of the winged monkeys in Oz.
