“Thomas Sweterlitsch is a superstar. … Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a brutal, beautiful book. Read it.” —Jesse Kellerman, internationally bestselling author of Trouble

“Tomorrow and Tomorrow
 is a rich, absorbing, relentlessly inventive mindfuck, a smart, dark noir… a wild mash-up of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick, and William S. Burroughs and, like their work, utterly visionary.” —Stewart O’Nan, author of The Odds

Yesterday Can’t Last Forever…

A decade has passed since the city of Pittsburgh was reduced to ash.
While the rest of the world has moved on, losing itself in the noise of a media-glutted future, survivor John Dominic Blaxton remains obsessed with the past. Grieving for his wife and unborn child who perished in the blast, Dominic relives his lost life by immersing in the Archive—a fully interactive digital reconstruction of Pittsburgh, accessible to anyone who wants to visit the places they remember and the people they loved.
Dominic investigates deaths recorded in the Archive to help close cases long since grown cold, but when he discovers glitches in the code surrounding a crime scene—the body of a beautiful woman abandoned in a muddy park that he’s convinced someone tried to delete from the Archive—his cycle of grief is shattered.
With nothing left to lose, Dominic tracks the murder through a web of deceit that takes him from the darkest corners of the Archive to the ruins of the city itself, leading him into the heart of a nightmare more horrific than anything he could have imagined.


Fantastic Praise for Tomorrow and Tomorrow
Playboy’s Book of The Month

Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a delicious dystopian mystery being described as Blade Runner meets Minority Report.” —Kirkus Reviews Blog

“The premise of this debut novel is fascinating in its possibilities… John’s grief is a palpable, living thing, preventing him from participating in his own life. Fans of William Gibson and classic noir will love how the styles intersect here.” —Library Journal, Starred Review and Debut of the Month

“It’s quite unusual for a first-time writer to have such a command of so many literary styles… It’s fiction, of course, but just close enough to our reality to be disturbing.” —Pittsburgh Tribune

“If good science fiction is true to the dictum that the future is just like now only more so, then Tomorrow and Tomorrow is great science fiction.”

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Vivid and compelling.” —Publishers Weekly

“It’s a testament to Sweterlitsch’s skill that he makes the reader feel Dominic’s grief for his wife and unborn daughter so powerfully… Vividly and beautifully written.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Simultaneously trippy and hard-boiled, Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a rich, absorbing, relentlessly inventive mindfuck, a smart, dark noir…Sweterlitsch’s debut is a wild mash-up of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick, and William S. Burroughs and, like their work, utterly visionary.”
                        —Stewart O’Nan, author of The Odds

“Thomas Sweterlitsch is a superstar. Right out of the blocks, he’s managed to achieve what most authors never do: the creation of a world so complete–so sensually rich and emotionally authentic–that it reduces the real world to a pale impression. Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a brutal, beautiful book. Read it.” —Jesse Kellerman, internationally bestselling author of Trouble

“A brilliantly disturbing tale of deceit, and the tangled griefs of murder and conspiracy that haunt a virtual world. Thomas Sweterlitsch writes with deft and uncanny prescience about a future that seems all-too-likely. A must-read for lovers of tech noir.”
— Yangsze Choo, internationally bestselling author of The Ghost Bride
“Tomorrow & Tomorrow is weird, hypnotic, and lovely.  Sweterlitsch’s future is close enough to be plausible, and strange enough to be fascinating.”
                        — Django Wexler, author of The Thousand Names
“A mesmerizing, genre-mixing sci-fi, noir mystery that inhabits its influences rather than merely wearing them knowingly on its sleeve. I could not put it down.”
                        —Wayne Gladstone, author of Notes from the Internet Apocalypse
