* BroadStrokes[=/=]NegativeContinuity: While all of the novels seems to take all of the events of the previous ones in account, each installment seems to ignore the ending of the previous one. WordOfGod is that each novel takes place in its own [[AlternateUniverse parallel universe]].

* ''2001: A Space Odyssey'' (1968): A interesting case since the novel is actually the byproduct to a collaboration between Clarke and Creator/StanleyKubrick, which resulted in [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey the film of the same name]] that came out the same year, which makes the book the {{Novelization}} (Clarke himself said the book should have been credited to "Clarke and Kubrick", just like the movie was credited to "Kubrick and Clarke"). The book and the film are both based on some of Clarke's earlier short stories, most prominently ''The Sentinel'', and they largely follows the same plot, but with some small differences.\\

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: In-Universe, mixed with NonindicativeName. The monolith near Jupiter is designated TMA-2. This is in spite of the fact that TMA stands for Tycho Magnetic Anomaly, referring to the original monolith on the moon (which stopped being magnetic after it realized it had been dug up). The crew of the Leonov snarkily refuse to use the term. Happens later on when Moonwatcher's monolith is dug up and termed TMA-0.

* NightmareFuel: In-Universe in ''3001'', the people were terrified when they observe a planet explode, which triggered a supernova. They are left to wonder if there was intelligence on that planet or if they somehow caused it.
