Dead Rite chapter 166.08

“It's not reasonable to deny this opportunity. Imagine what golems could do.” Despite his plastic face and bellow lungs, Dill managed to fill the sentence with all the wonder of a child at Christmas, or at least a child with well off parents who celebrated the holiday. “They could go underwater without aqualungs, into space without oxygen or even the need of a space suit, work in hazardous environments without a radiation suit. With the right upgrades they could perform their tasks without external equipment. Supersoldiers with telescopic sight and the computing ability of a mainframe. They could be the next stage in human evolution.”

Jasfoup's mouth was a single hard line. “But they wouldn't be human.”
