* ''Literature/TalesFromTheFlatEarth''



* BodyToJewel: In the ''Flat Earth'' series, Ferazhin, who was created from a flower, has tears that turn into gems.



* HellHasNewManagement: In ''Death's Mistress'', the Queen of Hell was a human princess who ousted Death from his throne instead of serving him for 1000 years. Death decided he liked roaming the Earth, but the inhabitants of Hell want him to come back.



* FisherKing: In ''Death's Master'', Narasen's kingdom is cursed to be as barren as she was. After her death, she returns and reinvokes the curse in jealous revenge, contaminating the land with the poison that killed her.
* GenderBender: One of the main characters of ''Death's Master'', the second novel in the Flat Earth fantasy series, is this.
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: The Lords of Darkness in the ''Flat Earth'' series are personifications of human ideas such as Death and Madness, and most would cease to exist without human belief; the first Lord, the personification of Wickedness, is stated to be older than humanity, but it's implied even he would be diminished without humans around. The Gods themselves don't seem to care one bit whether humans die or not, and regard a very real threat to humanity with a nonchalant shrug.



* LifeDrain: In ''Death's Master'' (from the "Flat Earth" cycle), there's a wizard who takes on an apprentice and charges only one fee for his lessons: he gets to bugger the kid every night. When the apprentice finally quits, the wizard reveals that the sex was draining off years of his life (which were transferred to the wizard); and that to add insult to injury, for the few years left of the boy's life, he will act more like the lustful old wizard himself.



* WonderChild: In one of the Flat Earth books, the lady who wants a child has a date with an angel. They kiss, and she is told she'll conceive the next time she and her husband are together; she does, and thereby hangs the tale.
** The woman encountered a beautifull man who's essentially an air elemental variation. He tries to warn her off, but she's not having any of it and steals a kiss from him...leading him to giver her the warning. The resulting child has a touch of the supernatural and besides being unusually beautiful, she has eyes that change colour according to her moods.
