In the 1930's, Russian author Alexander Volkov looking for an English book to translate into Russian as a hobby. He chose Creator/LFrankBaum's ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' as his book. He brought out his rather liberal translation of the story in 1939 (the same year {{MGM}} released [[Film/TheWizardOfOz their film]]). He called it ''The Wizard of the Emerald City'', and the country where the story is set became, not Oz, but ''Magic Land''. The Soviet Union was not part of international copyright protection back then, so it was perfectly legal. Modern Russia is, but InNameOnly, by the way.

* GenerationXerox: In ''The Seven Underground Kings'' the Cave has two rival doctors Boril and Robil. A TimeSkip of several generations later… there are still two rival doctors Boril and Robil. Justified, since it's stated explicitly that the profession is passed from [[FollowInMyFootsteps father to son]].



* ImplausibleDeniability: ''The Seven Underground Kings'' has an argument between two doctors about whether a certain man is dead - the magic water even stops breathing and heartbeat, but the body is still warm and there is no rigor mortis. In the middle of the argument, the person stirs and opens his eyes. The pro-dead doctor, mocked by hiis colleague, merely states "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis It's! still! necessary! to! prove! that! he's! alive!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* HufflepuffHouse: The Good Witches and their subjects. They are nice and happy, and that's practically all we know. The villains are too scared to attack them, but for unknown reasons the heroes don't visit them often either. They do some good things far away in the background, but little more.
** Villina, if she appears, pops up in the beginning of the book with a prophecy about the plot and promptly disappears into thin air (literally) again. The Yellow Land is never a plot location, never gets described, and we never learn the name of its inhabitants.
** Stella gets a bit more screen time along with the Chatterboxes and Flying Monkeys of hers, but still she doesn't even appear after the first book. The longtime trade between the Rose Land and the Leaper tribe is mentioned but not elaborated upon. Basically, the only truly plot-relevant thing coming from the Rose Land was the magical television.

The book was revised in 1959, with illustrations by Leonid Vladimirsky after three years ''Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'' went public domain. It was later adapted into a stop motion series of shorts in the 1970s.

* CapturedByCannibals: Subverted. Charlie Black was presumed dead for years after being captured by a cannibal tribe. When he turns up alive in the second book, Ellie asked whether he managed defeat them in combat. Charlie stated there was no way for him to have fought off thousands of people, but the cannibals turned out to be quite nice guys, and once he showed himself to be more useful alive than cooked, they were all too happy to leave him alive, accepted him into the tribe, and, eventually, helped him return home.

* DerivativeDifferentiation: It started off as a loose translation of ''TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', but later books in the series are original works that use said translation as a basis.

** Taken UpToEleven with the above-mentioned German ''sequels to Volkov's sequels'' by Klaus and Aljonna Möckel (as [[{{Pseudonym}} Nikolai Bachnow]]) as well as Sukhinov's Russian-language works based on Volkov's first book. That means that (at least the German and Russian versions of) the Wizard of Oz, in the broadest sense, now has three continuities - Baum's original work, Volkov's translation and his own sequels, the Möckels' German-exclusive sequels set in the same universe and Sukhinov's reboot.

That means that (at least the German and Russian versions of) the Wizard of Oz, in the broadest sense, now has three ''four'' continuities - Baum's original work, Volkov's translation and his own sequels, the Möckels' German-exclusive sequels set in the same universe and Sukhinov's reboot.
