Other works by Kevin J. Anderson provide examples of:
- Fantasy Pantheon: In the Terra Incognita series, the supreme god Ondun has three sons: Jorun, who stayed to rule the literal Heaven on Earth, Terravitae, and his other two sons Aiden and Urec, who he sent out to explore the world and whose later quarrel formed the basis for the two religions in conflict in the story.
- Schizo Tech: In the Terra Incognita series the general tech level is the usual Middle Ages type found in fantasy stories but the Saedrans use navigational equipment better suited to the 18th century that enable them to determine longitude and the Urecari invent crude, balloon based airships.
