* TheAllConcealingI: Early chapters of ''The Holmes-Dracula File'' obscure the identity of the central character, calling him 'the old man' instead. Not until the fifth chapter does the novel switch from third to first person, revealing that 'the old man' is not only a vampire, Dracula himself, but the narrator as well.
* FightDracula: Franchise/SherlockHolmes takes on Dracula in ''The Holmes-Dracula File''. Although this turns out to be thanks to mistaken identity, and they team up against the ''real'' villain in the end.
* GroundhogDayLoop: ''After the Fact'' has the main character taught to use his ''natural talent'' for this in a plan to secretly rescue UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln from his assassination. It comes in handy that, any time things go wrong, he can reset to a few minutes back and try again.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* PerspectiveFlip: ''The Frankenstein Papers''.
