Thomas Sweterlitsch has a Master's Degree in Literary and Cultural Theory from Carnegie Mellon. For the last twelve years he has been a Reader Advisor with the Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and daughter. Tomorrow and Tomorrow is his first novel.
Ten years after the attack that reduced Pittsburgh to ashes, all that remains is the Archive: an interactive digital record of the city and its people. John Dominic Blaxton is a 'lucky one'. He survived the blast, but, crippled by the loss of his wife and unborn daughter, his days are spent immersed in the Archive with the ghosts of yesterday. It is there that he finds the record of a forgotten body. Who was this woman? And why is someone hacking the system to delete her seemingly unremarkable life? The hunt for the truth will drag Dominic from the darkest corners of the past into a deadly and very present nightmare.
Maxim Jakubowski's Book of the Month. Heralded as a mix of Philip K. Dick, William Burroughs and Raymond Chandler, this splendid slice of future noir hits all the right buttons and demonstrates that cyberpunk is not dead. Following the nuclear destruction of Pittsburgh from a terrorist atrocity, a grieving poet sustained by drugs and augmented by implants which connect him to the web is recruited to find a shady politician's daughter. Enter more femmes fatales than you can juggle, virtual reality pirates and a touching love story that shares the spoils with non stop, dizzy imaginative action. At times exquisitely written and both explosively paced and surprisingly melancholy, this a stunning debut which combines the best of crime and science fiction writing in one full swoop.
