Oziana is a gen Wizard of Oz anthology of articles and art. This zine was published by the International Wizard of Oz Club. They describe this magazine as follows:

"Oziana is the creative magazine of the International Wizard of Oz Club, featuring the best in new Oz short fiction and poetry. Each annual issue contains at least three original stories, fully illustrated in black and white, and a colorful cover." "The Oz Club launched the magazine in 1971 as a way for members to share their fictional work. It thus appeared near the beginning of the “fan fiction” movement (back when this form of writing was called “pastiche”). There have been at least 44 issues published annually.

Oziana 38 was published in 2011, and contains 40 pages. It is also referred to as Oziana 2008, although the cover shows "Oziana 38".

As of issue #39, the issues were primarily referred to just by publication year, and that is all that appears on the covers, with no issue numbers. It appears that many issues, if not all, referred to themselves internally by their relative issue number.

Oziana 2009/2010 was re-published in 2012, as a second edition, in a dos-a-dos format, with covers on each side. The total page length is 40 pages. We do not know if they were published as separate publications in those years, or whether it was only published as a double issue. The publication date for issue #38 implies a disruption in the publication schedule.

Oziana 2011 was published in 2011, and contains 48 pages.

Oziana 2013 was published in 2013, and contains 56 pages.
