“One at a time, the men emerged; their arms were dense with tattoos, earlobes deformed by gappers, noses pierced by silver rings. They looked, Annie thought, like they’d given up on being human, had begun transforming themselves into whatever came next.”

What writer(s) or works have influenced the way...
