Flight of the Horse - Larry Niven

A collection of stories, several of which are about a time agent's missions to collect rare animals from earth's past from a far future time. They have a humorous bent as the hapless servant does the will of his political master.

There is a Warlock story - What Good Is A Glass Dagger, and also his Flash Crowd look at mass teleportation.

The old Warlock still has the mana experimentation thing going on. A werewolf wants in, and he has a problem with a snail dragon as well.

So he goes for a low-tech sneaky solution, with a bit of subterfuge, as well as a bit of magical innovation.
