JZ Murdock's first horror story was published in 1990 ("In Memory, Yet Crystal Clear") and also has short stories published in various anthologies along with other authors. With a degree. in Psychology, he was for many years a Sr. Technical Writer. But as there isn't much character or story development in that and certainly no punch at the end, he has chosen to turn his attentions to writing horror and sci fi, screenplays and some non-fiction, including a weekly blog at Murdockinations.com.
The first full chapter of Death of heaven, "The Conqueror Worm" is also available as standalone ebook or audiobook (http://amzn.to/21QDauB). I challenge anyone to read that and not honestly feel that they do not want to turn the page to the next chapter. Also there are several audiobooks available on Amazon, Audible.com and iTunes - http://bit.ly/1qXtMSl

I enjoyed reading this short story a few months ago. In the last few weeks I've seen ads for the movie "Her". The story line seemed so familiar and I couldn't put my finger on why. ...because JZ Murdock had the idea first. It's a thought-provoking read.
