Fiction. Stephen Moles (author of THE MOST WRETCHED THING IMAGINABLE) returns with his most complex and rewarding novel yet. ALL THE WORLD'S A SIMULATION is a metafictional tour de force featuring Shakespeare, Snow White and an infinite number of evil Stephen Hawkings. While its main characters attempt to escape from it, the book constantly rewrites itself before the reader's gaze to reveal a profound secret about the power behind this and all other literary works. Thoroughly playful yet deeply serious, this extraordinary novel offers a personality-altering reading experience and an initiation into the realm of dark meaning.This edition includes as an appendix two related works, the novellas Fossil People and Life.exe.
Stephen Moles is the author of several books, including ALL THE WORLD'S A SIMULATION (Sagging Meniscus Press, 2018), THE MOST WRETCHED THING IMAGINABLE: OR BENEATH THE BURNT UMBRELLA (Sagging Meniscus Press, 2016), Paul is Dead (CCLaP, 2015), and The More You Reject Me, the Bigger I Get (Beard of Bees, 2015), as well as many other shorter pieces. He regularly carries out undercover literary assignments aimed at both fighting the centralisation of meaning and bringing about the linguistic singularity for the benefit of society. Stephen is also the founder of the Dark Meaning Research Institute, a group of parasemantic investigators and quantum linguistics pioneers who are currently working on a way to blast him off the page and turn him into the world's first zero-person author.
