JZ Murdock is a writer/author and wannabe screenwriter, turned filmmaker in Bremerton, Washington. His works delve into science fiction, horror, the macabre and the bizarre, reminiscent of the "Twilight Zone", Poe, Lovecraft and PK Dick. His first horror story published was in a horror quarterly in 1990 and is also an audiobook ("In Memory, Yet Crystal Clear"). It's a Philip K Dick type story about how America becomes a dystopian society by foolishly following one man control over their media.
JZ Murdock's short stories are published in his books as well as various anthologies with other authors. He holds a degree in Psychology from Western Washington University. He was a Sr. Technical Writer in IT around the Pacific Northwest on some very high level teams, including one involved with national cybersecurity issues.

His sequel, "Anthology of Evil II" is a two book volume. Book II, "The Unwritten" is a curious tale of three universes as they are drawn together to a curious ending.
