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.

Synopsis

Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Thomas Sweterlitsch

It is ten years since the attack that reduced Pittsburgh to ashes. Today all that remains is the Archive: an interactive digital record of the city and its people. John Dominic Blaxton is a survivor, one of the 'lucky ones' who escaped the blast. Crippled by the loss of his wife and unborn daughter, he spends his days immersed in the Archive with the ghosts of yesterday. It is there he finds the digital record of a body: a woman, lying face down, half buried in mud. Who is she ...and why is someone hacking into the system and deleting the record of her seemingly unremarkable life? This question will drag Dominic from the darkest corners of the past into a deadly and very present nightmare.

Reviews

'Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a rich, absorbing, relentlessly inventive mindfuck ... a wild mashup of Raymond Chandler, Philip K. Dick and William S. Burroughs, and, like their work, utterly visionary' -- Stewart O'Nan, author of The Odds
