* CurseEscapeClause: The short story "Ghost Stories" (collected in ''Bruce Coville's Book of Ghosts'') features the ghost of a seafarer who simply could not stop wandering the world, much to the annoyance of his wife. Since she was a witch, she put a curse on him, that his ghost would only rest once man had walked on the moon, and he was told about it. However, he's not in much of a hurry to move on, as he's found a young boy who's eager to hear his stories (and the boy's friend almost spills the beans before he knows that).

''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.''
