Publisher's Summary

Thomas Phillips knows he's losing his mind. He's been losing it for as long as he can remember. And yet, when a strange old man asks him to consider that he, out of everyone in the world, knows the real truth, Thomas' life begins to spiral out of control. He loses interest in his job and is fired. He refuses his wife's suggestion of psychiatric care, and she leaves him. In the end, Thomas is alone. Except he's not, because someone seems to be following him.
What if you were Thomas? Where would you go? What would you do? What if you realized every person in your life had been scripted to be there? What if you were haunted by the idea that you'd lived all these encounters before, hundreds or even thousands of times before? And what if the person watching all this time was you?
Thomas World explores what happens when the borders of reality start seeming a bit pores...when things start bleeding through the edges, challenging ones perceptions of the universe. The grand tradition of Dickian, New Wave SF is explored by Richard Cox in this 21st century thriller!


Audible Editor Reviews

Is Thomas Phillips crazy, or is it the rest of the world? In Richard Cox's mind-bending thriller, realities become blurred and lies are exposed as Thomas begins to figure out the truth behind his life. Andy Caploe contributes to the mysterious narrative concocted by Cox, using a searching and inquisitive tone to capture Thomas' sense of confusion as he navigates the strange events of his life and begins to wonder if all of it is fiction. An intriguing mix of The Truman Show and Philip K. Dick, Thomas World is a great addition to New Wave science fiction.
