!!Other works by Julian May contain examples of:

* BodyHorror: In ''Orion Arm'', an apparently alien life form in a prison settlement is revealed to be a human convict who fell afoul of the gangs that run the prison and was transformed using a sample of DNA from a real alien.
* ExoticEquipment: In ''Orion Arm'', the main character is turned into one of the alien Haluk (on a superficial level). While the twigs and berries are never actually described, there is a reference to there being...well...two.
* GeniusBruiser: Ivor in ''Perseus Spur'' is a massive fitness trainer who can use a high-tech collar to enhance his already insane muscle development until he can lift a couple of hundred kilograms, and who is smart enough that he speaks in SesquipedalianLoquaciousness, such as referring to his job as "quotidian ennui". He's also a talented chef.
* MegaCorp: The Hundred Concerns in the ''Rampart Worlds'' trilogy.
* MoustacheDePlume: Julian May has also published under "Ian Thorne", "J. C. May" and "Lee N. Falconer". "Julian May" doesn't count, because it's her actual name.
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler:Alistair Drummond]] in the second book of ''The Rampart Worlds'' trilogy. The protagonist, Asahel Frost, worries occasionally about whether he's actually dead. [[spoiler:And then the guy turns out to be alive enough to steal Asa's identity while working with villainous aliens. When he's eventually killed off, the body is immediately in evidence, although mauled by a wolverine.]]
* NonMaliciousMonster: The titular monster in the short story "Dune Roller". Long ago, it crashed to Earth, with many small parts of itself (its "children") being widely scattered. It doesn't go out of its way to harm other creatures, but if you get in its way when it tries to reabsorb its children, it ''will'' go MamaBear on you.
* SolidGoldPoop: ''Orion Arm'' is set in a CrapsackWorld future run by The Hundred Concerns, where criminals are imprisoned in the so-called Coventry prison towns. Tourism is allowed (although your insurance is invalidated) and one club displays an alien lifeform that licks silver nitrate deposits for nourishment, only to crap out the silver in the form of a large sphere.
