I have always had a soft spot for the film _Zardoz_, which, to be honest, is simply a mess. It’s like watching the early television versions of _On Her Majesty’s Secret Service_ when they had gotten the reels out of order. Or maybe it’s like watching the second _Planet of the Apes_ movie: you keep waiting for it to make sense, but then the ending comes and … nothing.
Still, the idea of a future world drawn out of _The Wizard of Oz_ always gets me. Apparently I am not alone in my weakness for the film: Ryan Britt has a lovely piece on Tor’s website that reveals his own fascination.
