Ryga's other plays and 3 novels, Hungry Hills (1963), Ballad of a Stonepicker (1966) and In the Shadow of the Vulture (1985), also explored the problems of self-doubt, alienation and personal unfulfilment.

His other works include Captives of the Faceless Drummer (1972), Night Desk (1976), Seven Hours to Sundown (1977), Beyond the Crimson Morning (1979) and Two Plays: Paracelsus and Prometheus (1982).
