Yes, for sure. There is, for example, "The Testament of Job" which formed
the material for the PH.D. thesis written at the Hebrew University by
Peter Nicholls, a former student of Professor Michael Stone. Peter is
possibly still teaching at Corpus Christi College in Clayton, Victoria,
Melbourne, Australia. Prof Stone has translated and edited the
"Apocalypse of Adam", and edited other pseudipigrapha, such as " Fourth
Ezra" (published in 1994 or 5). Of course the "Genesis Apocryphon,"
(edited by Joseph Fitzmeyer) however you classify it, is part of the
"sifrut hitzonit" found at Qumran. There are other examples.
