* In the {{Spellsinger}} series by Creator/AlanDeanFoster, an anthro turtle wizard named Clothahump has drawers that pull out of his chest that he uses to store various spell components. His house, which is built inside a tree, has a similar effect on it, though he warns that excessive use of the spell can become very expensive because [[IncrediblyLamePun it causes inflation]].

* Invoked explicitly in Anne Bishop's ''BlackJewels'' trilogy: Mages can "vanish" objects, presumably into their own personal Hammerspace, and call them back in when needed. The amount of HammerSpace you have directly correlates with how powerful you are.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', Hermione uses the magic {{Hammerspace}} spell (an 'Undetectable Extension Charm') to put a ton of books and other stuff into her beaded purse. Including a large picture frame, which is larger than the purse itself. Amazingly enough, it isn't heavy to her at all.

It "rumbles like a cargo hold" every time it's shaken.)
