Added details from trope pages. Commented out one ZCE I couldn't find any explanation of.
* {{Comedy}} and {{Tragedy}}: Most of Willis's novels fall strongly into one or the other of these two classical genres. DoomsdayBook, LincolnsDreams and {{Passage}} are tragedies, ToSayNothingOfTheDog, Remake, Bellwether and Inside Job are comedies. * DividedWeFall * FixFic * NoPeriodsPeriod: Hilariously zigzagged in the Hugo-winning short story EvenTheQueen. * YetAnotherChristmasCarol: "Adaptation" is a rather less formulaic take on the standard Christmas visitation formula

"Even the Queen", in which a technology has been invented that allows women to avoid them entirely. * YetAnotherChristmasCarol: "Adaptation" is opens with a rather less formulaic take on massive lampshade, with the standard protagonist going on at length about how many adaptations exist of ''A Christmas visitation formulaCarol''. When he encounters the three Christmas Ghosts, he thinks he knows what's going on, but it turns out they have a different mission this time.

misuse of History Marches On, which is when understanding of a historical event is less than it is now
* HistoryMarchesOn: The long timespan over which the Oxford Time Travellers series has been published (30 years and counting) leads to weird things like SeptemberEleventh popping up in the backstory in the last book and all the cats going extinct in 2004. It probably would have been easier just to make it an AlternateHistory where the Communists with the pinpoint ''replaced'' Al Qaeda, but apparently not.
