“Strong debut…vivid and compelling.” —Publishers Weekly

Yesterday cannot 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. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “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, New York Times bestselling author of Trouble

  • “The premise of this debut novel is fascinating in its possibilities, as the adware implants the characters wear and the archive serve as an extension of the virtual worlds, pervasive surveillance, and targeted advertising that people live with already. 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)

  • “Vivid and compelling.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In this haunting work, narrator Adam Paul brings protagonist John Dominic Blaxton back to life. This is no mean feat…Paul portrays Dominic as a man on the brink of losing his sanity. He also ably voices distinctive supporting characters. This scathing indictment of a world overrun with media is harrowing but, ultimately, redemptive.”


  • “In the not-too-distant future, a mysterious explosion has reduced the city of Pittsburgh to rubble and ashes. A virtual-reality re-creation of it, the Archive, allows people to revisit the lost city and lost loved ones…A very good job of keeping cyberpunk (which has lost much of its original connection to punk culture) up-to-date in its extrapolation of cybernetics and culture.”


  • “Vividly and beautifully written.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Tomorrow and 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
