More Tomorrow & Other Stories is a collection by British author Michael Marshall Smith. It draws together 30 of the author's short stories, including several written specifically for this book. Smith's short stories had been partially collected in 1999's What You Make It, but this had only been published in the UK. More Tomorrow & Other Stories represented the first time that the stories had been published for the American market. In addition to the extra stories, it features an introduction by Stephen Jones and an afterword by Smith.

Published in 2003 as a limited edition by Earthling Publications, it exists in two states: 1000 signed and numbered copies and 26 signed and lettered traycased copies. Both are sold out.

The collection itself won the 2003 International Horror Guild Award for Best Collection, and contains several award winning stories.
