Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Tom SweterlitschA 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.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow takes place 10 years after a blast that decimated Pittsburgh, and just about everywhere you go, there are memorials of Pittsburgh survivors ranging from the glossy to the makeshift, gatherings of the dead in pen and ink or etched in stone. John Dominic Blaxton is a Pittsburgh survivor, out of town during the blast, a cruel twist of fate that left him unscathed and his pregnant wife dead. He also finds out that his psychiatric care has been transferred to another therapist, who goes by the name of Timothy, and as it happens, he has a job offer for Dominic. Waverly, a very rich, very powerful man wants Dominic to find his daughter , and ethereal beauty named Albion, for him. Soon Dominic is immersed in the Archive, using everything in his arsenal to track down even a small trace of Albion, but as he searches, he starts to make other connections that lead him back to the murder of a woman named Hannah, the last case he worked for his former firm, that he never wrapped up. VR and reality soon start to blur for Dominic as pressure mounts to find Albion and prevent a tragedy that might hit him very close to home. Tomorrow and Tomorrow will yank you out of that reading rut.
Thank you! An addict searches for the missing virtual traces of several women—including his dead wife—in this gritty sci-fi thriller, set in an unpleasantly plausible near-future dystopia.

Now, he compulsively visits the Archive, a virtual recreation of Pittsburgh, both in his role as an insurance investigator of cold cases and as a grieving husband replaying encounters with Theresa, taking illegal drugs to enhance his memories.

BOOK REVIEW Rise of the cyber-men
Surprising, because he starts by blowing the city up. His day job involves trawling the Archive for insurance companies, verifying when and how policyholders died — when he comes across the body of a beautiful college girl in Nine Mile Run, killed before the city is destroyed. Sony won the rights. We had our honeymoon in Prague, and noticed some similarities in the ways they look and feel. I wrote a short story about someone in Prague who could only revisit his memories of Pittsburgh through this digital archive. That grew into the idea of Pittsburgh being gone, and this person who could only relive these happy moments in his life through this digital map. For whatever reason, I did something completely out of character and wrote him a fan letter.
The book follows a special agent into a savage murder case with grave implications for the fate of mankind. Such plot ideas are hardly new for Mr. Why picking Pittsburgh as a setting? For one thing, because he lives there. His new novel, which also happens in Western Pennsylvania, is both luminous and unsettling. What comes below is a conversation with him on his inspirations for The Gone World and the characters in the story.
Tomorrow And Tomorrow book review. Not so long ago, cyberpunk felt as dated as camo trousers and wallet chains. But with the rise of devices like Google Glass and the Oculus Rift, the genre is suddenly finding a fresh relevance. Enter Thomas Sweterlitsch's debut. Ten years ago, Pittsburgh was reduced to ash in a terrorist attack.
