Wishbringer (Infocom, 1984 or 1985)

While not a bona fide Zork game, Wishbringer does take place in the same universe, on the island continent of Antharia in a town called Festeron. While it is a very easy game, it was meant to be, as one of Infocom very few introductory level adventures. It tells a very interesting and well-developing story that revolves around several seemingly unrelated quests, such as delivering a letter! With some excellent descriptive prose, and quite a few surprises, this is a fun game to play, even though it is very easy and would not present much of a challenge to any experienced gamer.
