YMMV: Takeshi Kovacs
- Nightmare Fuel: Richard Morgan, major proponent of modern Humans Are the Real Monsters sci-fi, can reach Nightmare Fuel levels through sheer cynicism. In this series, people's minds are backed up on in-brain memory and easily transferred to another body (or 'sleeve'). Major societal change from this? A Fate Worse Than Death is now standard procedure. They're Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique Lotus Eater Machines, pretty much.
