* 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.

* The ''Literature/VillageTales'' series is stuffing with these. Including historical documents attributed to Wordsworth, Pope, Addison, Johnson, and Grey (and the Duke of Taunton's late InUniverse godfather, Sir John Betjeman), and parliamentary speeches printed in ''Hansard.'' All of them excellent ShownTheirWork [[{{Pastiche}} pastiches.]]
