Murdock, M S

Tagged: Author

(1947-    ) US author who began writing sf with a Star Trek tie, Web of the Romulans (1983), and who later continued in much the same vein with her two Buck Rogers sequences:the Buck Rogers Martian Wars Trilogy beginning with Buck Rogers: Rebellion 2456 (1989) and one title contributed to the Buck Rogers Inner Planets Trilogy: Buck Rogers: Prime Squared (1990). In between, Murdock composed a Space-Opera series of her own – Vendetta (1987) and Dynteryx (1988) – but this did little to modify a sense that her use of the conventions of 1980s adventure sf, though professional, lacked a personal touch.
