* ApocalypticMontage: In "Literature/TheGreatNebraskaSea", a ShortStory by Creator/AllanDanzig, most of the story is spent on describing the effects of an [[EarthquakesCauseFissures earthquake from Canada, through America, into Mexico]], and ends the story by describing the way people would adapt to the new landscape.
* ArrangedMarriage: In "[[Literature/Christmas200000BC Christmas 200,000 B.C.]]", by Creator/StanleyWaterloo, a [[OneMillionBC caveman]] named Fangs brings his friend Wolf home to take his daughter Red Lips home (marriage hasn't been invented yet). When She Fox tries to object, Fangs beats her and drags her back into the cave.
* EarthquakesCauseFissures: "Literature/TheGreatNebraskaSea", by Creator/AllanDanzig, explains that the Niobrara, Kiowa, and Conchas fault lines are all part of the same line, going from Canada, through America, and into Mexico. The story goes on to predict that [[NextSundayAD in the near future]], an earthquake will occur, and dramatic changes start to occur. Colorado gets shaken up, causing dust storms and rock slides. The 'quake gets worse, and the ground cracks open, parts of the land rising and dropping. The Gulf of Mexico advances over the land that's now below sea level, [[ApocalypticMontage and so on]].
* ExtyYearsFromNow: In "Literature/TheGreatNebraskaSea", by Creator/AllanDanzig, the earthquake that starts the whole disaster occurs in 1973, exactly ten years (to the season) after the story was published.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: In "[[Literature/Christmas200000BC Christmas 200,000 B.C.]]", by Creator/StanleyWaterloo, Red Lips is supposed to be mated to Wolf, but runs away to find Yellow Hair. Together, the two of them conspire to kill Wolf so that they can be together instead.
* NextSundayAD: In "Literature/TheGreatNebraskaSea", by Creator/AllanDanzig, the story describes an [[EarthquakesCauseFissures earthquake destroying the American midwest by dropping it below sea level]]. [[ApocalypticMontage In plenty of detail]], before shifting to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture the way Americans adapted to the changed landscape]].
* PaintingTheMedium: In "Literature/FondlyFahrenheit", by Creator/AfredBester, a schizophrenic mass murderer and his [[RobotMe robot duplicate]] share being the protagonist. Sometimes the guy thinks of himself simply as himself, other times he thinks of himself as the robot, and then there's the times he thinks of them both as one person. All of this is accomplished by Bester constantly switching his use of pronouns.
* {{Patricide}}: In "[[Literature/Christmas200000BC Christmas 200,000 B.C.]]", by Creator/StanleyWaterloo, Red Lips convinces Yellow Hair to help her kill her father, Fangs, the most powerful [[OneMillionBC caveman]] in the area.
* OneMillionBC: "[[Literature/Christmas200000BC Christmas 200,000 B.C.]]", by Creator/StanleyWaterloo, describes a cave family over two hundred thousand years in the past.
* QuestioningTitle: "[[Literature/ExtensionPredictionFantasy Extension? Prediction? Fantasy?]]", by the editor Creator/FredObrecht.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: In "Literature/TheGreatNebraskaSea", by Creator/AllanDanzig, the story begins by describing how geologists identified various faults in America, then shifts to the [[NextSundayAD the immediate future]], describing the [[ApocalypticMontage destruction of the American Midwest]]. Finally, almost one hundred years after 1973, the story describes how American life has changed.
* WhichMe: In "Literature/FondlyFahrenheit", by Creator/AlfredBester, has a man and his [[RobotMe android duplicate]] unable to tell each other apart, nor which of them is a murderer.
