''Split Heirs'', co-written with Creator/EstherFriesner, is a hilarious deconstruction of PrinceAndPauper tropes, with THREE royal babies, one female and two male - the two boys get MosesInTheBullrushes'd, and the girl is brought up as a prince.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: In the short story "Efficiency", the agency keeping mythological creatures prefers to have these, in order to save the budget: it's cheaper to pay upkeep for one compound creature instead of two or three. For example, their dryad is also a naiad, as she lives in a mangrove tree. And their unicorn is also a vampire. [[spoiler:And that's not all he is...]]

->''In far too many fantasy stories only the main characters are people. Palace guards, in particular, come off badly; nobody seems to think twice about slitting the throats of a few guardsmen. I don't care what the job pays, you'd never get me to be a palace guard in some of these universes. If I wanted to commit suicide I could find more entertaining ways.''

* TheMagocracy: ''The Cyborg and the Sorcerers'' and ''The Wizard and the War Machine'', are set on an AfterTheEnd planet where PsychicPowers are [[FunctionalMagic considered magic]], whose countries are all ruled by mutant Magocracies. Yet each nation's government is different; some good, some bad, some outright incompetent.

* TheAirNotThere: ''The Cyborg and the Sorcerers'' is one of the few works with a DisintegratorRay to consider the issue of the ray having to disintegrate all the intervening air molecules before it reaches its intended target.



* AProtagonistShallLeadThem: Played with in ''Touched by the Gods'': Malledd is chosen by the gods to lead his people, but nobody, including Malledd, knows he's the ChosenOne. He ends up [[spoiler:leading accidentally but never actually becoming king, because he doesn't want to]].
