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.
