If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.
–Omar N. Bradley
Co-authored by the late, great science-fiction writer Project (Keikaku) Itoh (Genocidal Organ, Harmony) – who tragically passed away before he could complete his last novel – and his friend Toh EnJoe – who promised to carry out Itoh’s dying wish and complete the novel – The Empire of Corpses is an award winning work science fiction.
“I should begin by explaining my profession. And for that, we shall require a corpse.“
In late-19th century Europe, a new technology that allows the bodies of the dead to be installed with an artiﬁcial soul to create “Frankensteins”—corpses which can be utilized as laborers and soldiers—has spurred an industrial revolution across the Western world.
John H. Watson, a medical student living in London, is scouted by a government agency to serve as a secret agent. He quickly discovers that these “Frankensteins” and an individual, known as ‘The One’, may not have the world’s best interests at heart.
