** The OtherWiki has a rather extensive list of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu_Mythos_arcane_literature Cthulhu Mythos arcane literature]], most of which falls under this trope. ''The Book of Eibon'', ''Unaussprechlichen Kulten'', and ''De Vermis Mysteriis'' are mentioned nearly as often as ''The Necronomicon''.

* Footnotes in ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' seem to be written from in-universe perspective, sometimes referring the more curious reader to in-universe documents on the subjects such as the biology of werewolves or the [[NegativeSpaceWedgie witch rings]] of Beloria.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has stacks of these, from trading cards to school textbooks to government pamphlets to wizarding comic books.
** Not to mention JKR's predilection for [[{{Defictionalization}} turning some of them into published works]] (''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', ''Literature/QuidditchThroughTheAges'', ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'').

** Not
books. As time has gone on, Rowling has taken to mention JKR's predilection for [[{{Defictionalization}} turning some of them into published works]] (''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', ''Literature/QuidditchThroughTheAges'', ''Literature/TheTalesOfBeedleTheBard'').



* And of course the aforementioned ''Necronomicon'', spawned in the [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos horrorverse]] but since widely exported to other canons and other media.
** Now subverted as an actual Necronomicon has been published.
** In fact, ''many'' different Necronomicons have been published over the years. Their quality... varies. Some are merely collections of Mythos stories. Others run the gamut from psudeophilosophical ramblings to attempts at a "genuine" version of the Mad Arab's writings.

* The Others from the ''Literature/NightWatch'' series have effected The Great Treaty between Light and Darkness (hereinafter referred to as The Treaty) that restricted the century-old bloodshed between the Light Ones and the Dark Ones, regularized the relations between the two factions and stipulated formation and functioning of the Watches.

* Nix's other series, The Old Kingdom books, feature quite a few of these; of particular note is ''The Book of the Dead'', which follows people around, can only be opened by a necromancer and closed by an uncorrupted Charter mage, and causes the reader to forget the parts of it that would be too unpleasant to remember until needed. Slightly more mundane, but still magical, texts include ''The Book of Remembrance and Forgetting'', which is about how to see into the past; ''In The Skin of a Lyon'', which is about how to turn into an animal; and ''Creatures by Nagy'', which is a bestiary of unpleasant Free Magic monsters. It's that kind of series.

* One of the many details of the final draft script of StarWars that didn't make it into the finished cut of the movie [[note]]Along with the scene where Luke's friend Biggs (who was killed in the Death Star attack) was introduced and a large amount of George Lucas' legendarily awful dialogue that was script-doctored out of existence[[/note]] but preserved in AlanDeanFoster's novelization was the ''Journal of the Whills'', which seems to have been intended as a history of the Empire and its collapse.
