“A cybernetic tour de force starring a plucky heavy-metal heroine—in which we find out if music really can save us all.”
“A high-octane story, fueled by rocket-grade heavy metal. Sakura Intellectual Property tells a high-tech tale of intrigue, action, and rock and roll. The main character, an android/rockstar/Manchurian candidate, is written in vivid 3-D. This book is a page-turner from beginning to end. It reads like a full stack Marshall amplifier. If I could, I would plug my guitar right into this book and shake down the rafters.”

Zach loved life. He took every opportunity to experience it. He traveled to every country he could, just to learn and take part in how the people lived. He made friends all around the world and was the most loyal friend anyone could ask for. He was simply the best, most honest, loving, and supportive man I ever knew. I could tout his accomplishments—like his two tours in Iraq or his two bachelor degrees—but if we could ask him what his greatest accomplishment was, he’d say marrying his soul mate, Mackenzie.
Tragically, Zach died on January 15, 2016, from a blood clot. Shortly before his sudden passing, he finished the first draft of Sakura: Intellectual Property.
He loved this story—and Japan, where he once taught English. This novel, the greatest achievement in his writing career, brought together his love of music, action-thrillers, dystopian sci-fi, and Japanese culture, all centered around the most unique character he ever created. At his wake, Zach’s loyal friends, Patrick M. Tracy and Paul Genesse decided to finish his final project as a tribute to him. The best way to remember or get to know Zachary Hill is to read what he wrote. That’s all he would ask for. RIP, brother.
“A Japanese cyberpunk thriller that starts with
a bang and gets louder.”
