It is 2013, and while the eschatological prophecies of the Mayans, Mormons and Millennials have failed to pass, the world still teeters on the brink of disaster. This time, not from some vague divinely-ordained apocalypse, but rather a slow and agonizing death brought about by climate change, ecological decimation, rampant pollution, and resource depletion. In Parasites of the Universe, Evelyn Moores shares her vision of the nightmare that might await future generations.

Parasites of the Universe explores what life might be like in a future where resources are scarce, countless diseases ravage the remnant living, poisonous waters render the land barren and infertile, and a deadly, infiltrating sun scorches the surface of the Earth. In this desolate landscape, the story follows the physical and spiritual journey of a woman who is a member of one of the three diminutive tribes that gather in a minuscule region that can barely support human life – it is here that they desperately cling to a vestige of existence scavenging scarce food supplies, subsisting on the remains of a departed world and upholding a desperate sense of piety. It is through this woman’s journey, that we realize that hope is the only folly to despair.

The tale presents the binding and oppressive traditions of a dwindling populace, and their interactions with the unforgiving environs in a place and time where the accolades and achievements of our species mean little. When both god and nature have forsaken their prodigal children, those left behind must struggle to survive not only against a dying Earth, but also each other.

Evelyn Moores presents a chilling vision of the future with her portrayal of an apocalypse slowly but surely encroaching upon the world, a calamity threatening to befall the generations of tomorrow. Parasites of the Universe is a cautionary tale that urges readers not to take life, and the world, for granted, and that despite the failures of ancient prophecies, one must remain vigilant in safeguarding the future while treasuring the blessings of the present.
