2003 International Horror Guild Award Winner - Best Collection of the Year

SYNOPSIS: Going well beyond the scope of his UK collection from several years ago, this is the definitive collection of Smith's shorter fiction, as well as his long overdue first US collection. MORE TOMORROW & OTHER STORIES features 30 of the author's best stories, plus an introduction by award-winning editor Stephen Jones and an afterword by Michael Marshall Smith. A massive book, at almost 500 pages! There are no UK or US trade paperback, trade hardcover, or any other edition currently planned, so once these are gone, they're gone! Wraparound cover art by John Picacio.

"Smith is a true gem of our genre... if you're reading this magazine (Cemetery Dance), I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to own this book."

"[A] stellar retrospective collection. Most of the 30 stories, including four original to the volume, feature characters so believably common and unassuming that the nightmares that overtake them hit with the unexpected force of a sucker punch. This omnibus gathering will introduce American readers to one of the best writers of short horror fiction to emerge in the 1990s."
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review

"Contains [thirty] of this brilliant author's short stories and a novella. This is Smith's first collection published in the U.S. and is far more comprehensive than WHAT YOU MAKE IT, published by HarperCollins UK in 1999.
Smith is one of the best writers of horror and dark fantasy to have earned his chops in the last decade. This book is proof that his American publishers blew it when they didn't bring out a stateside edition of his first
story collection, WHAT YOU MAKE IT, a few years back."

"Michael Marshall Smith is one of the best short story writers of his generation. He came onto the horror scene with a bang, winning the British Fantasy Award for his first published story, and has continued to write subtle, haunting, beautifully written tales ever since. The publication of MORE TOMORROW & OTHER STORIES is a major event that will Smith the U.S. readership his short fiction deserves."
— Ellen Datlow

"It's not his craft and skill that Michael Marshall Smith displays in his short stories that I object to. It's not the easy wit, or the comfortable way he deploys language as a weapon. It's not even that way that he can conjure people so real in so few words. It's that, when a Mike Smith short story is over, it's pretty much guaranteed that there will be some moment, scene or revelation frozen in the back of my mind that I'll never be able to get out of my head, not even if I scrub it with wire wool so it bleeds."
— Neil Gaiman

"Michael Marshall Smith writes the kind of dreams we don't like to talk about, but can't get out of our minds once we've had them."
— Jonathan Carroll

"Smith's hauntingly nasty stories are laced with an odd sort of beauty."

"Michael Marshall Smith's short stories are consistently sharp, slick, original, witty, disquieting, entertaining, and plain brilliant."
— Graham Joyce

Congrats to contest winner Jessica Hekman who won a slipcased signed galley of MORE TOMORROW, one of only 10 copies!
