The Djiin in the Nightingale's Eye: Five Fairy Stories (1994), a collection of short stories, contains two stories from Possession: "The Glass Coffin" and "Gode's Story." Readers had frequently requested the separate publication of the stories, which were a popular part of Possession. "The Conjugial Angel," the second of the two novellas in Angels & Insects (1992), is Byatt's work most like Possession. Similarities include the nineteenth-century setting, the interest in spiritualism, the combination of real and fictional characters, and the literary focus (which deals with Tennyson and his poem In Memoriam).

Babel Tower (1996) uses a bookwithin-a-book (Babbletower) framing device, as does Possession. By juxtaposing the active story with the framed story, Byatt represents a whole society trying to come to terms with new values, much the same way Victorian values are contrasted with modern values in Possession.
