In adventures

Author Nathan Segerlind included Sam Ruby in his Tolkien-themed 1988 story The Bridge of Catzad-Dum. Ruby appears on a spiral stairway and is described as "examining the place carefully, muttering something to himself about, 'There has to be at least 2 more adventures in it!'"

Ruby also makes a guest appearance in Robert Parker's Encounter: The Bookworm, dressed in white slacks, leather loafers, and a San Francisco 49er's t-shirt, and holding a stack of papers and a slide rule.
