Z: True Stories of a Cult Kid
By Christopher Waltz

Series Description:

“I was taught to believe that humanity was imploding on itself. Only those of us living at the compound were pure, and it was our job to make sure the rest of the world got what it deserved.”

-Ezra Grady

On June 7th, 2009, after an argument with his parents, ten-year-old Ezra Grady ran away from his home in Harmony, Maryland. After years of searching for Ezra with no leads, the Harmony police declared him dead on June 11th, 2016.

On September 1st, Ezra reappeared at his former home, alive and well.

Told through letters, essays, police interviews, and photographs, Z: True Stories of a Cult Kid chronicles the mysterious, frightening, and deadly seven years of Ezra’s life after being recruited by and eventually escaping a doomsday cult based out of Dresden, Illinois.

However, as with every story, things may not be as they seem with Ezra, the cult, and his return home.

Notes:

Though it is written in the form of nonfiction books such as Helter Skelter and The Amityville HorrorZ: True Stories of a Cult Kid is a work of fiction. Any similiarities between the characters, places, or events of this story and any real life people, places, or happenings are purely coincidental. The Children of Set, Dresden, Illinois, Harmony, Maryland, Epoch Magazine, and all other aspects of this story presented as real are, in actuality, fictional.
