There are more, but that's all I can recall off the top of my head.
But don't let that keep you from reading them. For the most part, the movies are based quite loosely on his stories. Total Recall was barely related to We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, Paycheck seriously mangled Paycheck, and Imposter took liberties with The Imposter.

Read the originals. They're much, much better.
