* The Shining Trapezohedron in Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Haunter in the Dark'' summons the titular Haunter, an avatar of Nyarlathotep (it also gives you visions on the Outer Void and of its own history, but summoning an EldritchAbomination is clearly its main function).

* In ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', a summoning horn is this. It allows a magician to quickly summon a powerful spirit without the tedious time-consuming chanting of incantation or the normal personal risk of standing in a pentacle facing another pentacle. This is amply demonstrated in ''The Amulet of Samarkand'' when Simon Lovelace uses one to summon Ramuthra, a monstrous spirit capable of [[RealityWarper warping reality itself]].
