Stasheff's stories could be categorized as "medieval fantasy"; they are filled with sorcery, monsters, castles, etc. Stasheff has written several series of novels featuring a wizard or warlock as the main character. However, in at least the Warlock series, the "fantasy" is actually psionic or esper powers: telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, psychometry, etc., with time-travelling enemies and the protagonist's best friend is a high-tech computer AI in a robotic equine body. It has been suggested that Mageborn be merged into this article or section. ... Warlocks (another name for wizards) are, among historic Christian traditions, said to be the male equivalent of witches (usually in the pejorative sense of Europes Middle Ages), and were said to ride pitchforks instead of broomsticks. ...


The central theme running through all of Stasheff's novels is the spreading of Democracy (constitutional republic) as a form of government. The plot of almost every one of his novels is about a main character causing a change/revolution/coup in a society from monarchy, feudalism, or any other form of government to a more democratic/populist government.
