Simulating datasets representative of different hypotheses

Hi There,

Would anyone mind pointing me to resources (books, articles, blog posts, packages, etc.) that might help me improve my grip on how to best generate data to represent a group of related hypotheses?

So far I came across these suggestions, however, I'm looking for a bit more.

If you like a short introduction on simulation then the following book by Roger Peng contains a chapter:

For a more detailed discussion on simulation, you may refer to "A First Course in Statistical Programming with R" (2nd Edition) by Braun and Murdoch.

And last, but not the least, the following book is an excellent resource albeit a bit technical compared to the other two.
Introduction to Scientific Programming and Simulation using R by Owen Jones. (2nd Edition).
