Overview

Vancouver has become a disturbed, retched mess of murderous blue-bloods and lost hipster gardeners, sadistic baristas and immortal sushi masters. A drug-fed breeding ground of scoundrels set in an orgy of late-night tapa bars, yoga classes and sunset booze cruises.

Tribes have descended upon Lotusland, and at the center lies a hero and a hostage. Sebastian, an idle artist barely escapes crippling social anxieties by managing a posh urban gardening center and its group of varied misfits. He awakens one morning to a new world where all around him the preternatural and fantastic have crept through his city...and his mind.

Battle lines are drawn as mediocre villains and awkward heroes climb up into a dumpster fire of ancient morality and inventive revenge. At the center of it all lies The Plant, a mysterious tropical succulent that destroys minds, or fixes them, depending on where your morals lie. Thrust into leadership, Sebastian and his weirdos have six days to unwrap a messy family conspiracy before the city is lost and dread overtakes the entire west coast.

Coming at a time when societies and cultures are bonding together through forced distancing, The Sushi Prophecies offers hilarious relief and bizarre parallels all at once.

A truly unique voice and tale, for truly unique times.

About the Author

August Hill was born outside of Toronto, Canada, and now spends his time between Vancouver and the islands of the Salish Sea. As a child he ate up his father’s extensive library in secret and by the age of eight had written an epic novel of such great heights it stirred one of the good teachers to send him off to various writing conferences. He chose larger books to sit upon so as to not seem conspicuous to the other attendees.

Hill excelled in journalism school writing solely about the things he most obsessed over in life, attaining an MBA to build businesses around those same things thereafter. Having crawled up into the mucky ranks of academia and business, he now returns full circle to the page, exposing the characters and themes of a fragile and silly world through his fiction. His comedic explorations soar in a fresh title The Sushi Prophecies, a raucous urban tale dedicated to the magic at play all around us and all the best weirdos we love to hate.

Having eaten and surfed all over the world, Hill finds himself most touched by strangers of all types, but not like that. He spends much of his time by the sea with his hilarious baby boy, wonderfully Polish wife, eleven errant chickens, and a convict dog called Quest fetched from the Australian outback.

Working at an infamous hotel in the nineties, he once delivered a toothbrush to Barry Manilow, who was ironing his underwear at midnight.
