Tropes in her other works:
- All Trolls Are Different: In A Companion To Wolves, trolls fit into the "big ogrish" type physically. They can also move through rock and earth as easily as humans do through water and have a hivelike setup with a queen as the only fertile female, sterile female worker/soldiers and males whose only function is to impregnate the queen.
- Genre Deconstruction: With A Companion To Wolves, the authors do this to all bonded companion animal stories, especially Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern.
- Hell Hotel: The short story "The Devil in Gaylord's Creek" features one of these.
- Manly Gay: Nearly all the wolfcarls in A Companion To Wolves and its sequel The Tempering Of Men. Those who aren't are Bi the Way.
- Museum of the Strange and Unusual: The short story "Draco Campestris" takes place in one of these.
- Our Dragons Are Different: In A Companion to Wolves and its sequel The Tempering of Men wyverns have wings but they're vestigial. They also don't breathe fire and can be trained by trolls.
- Signature Scent: In A Companion To Wolves, each wolf's true name is a unique scent.
