* EarthShatteringKaboom: In ''3001'', the people observe a planet explode, which somehow triggered a supernova. They are left to wonder if there was intelligence on that planet and if they caused the supernova.

* ''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.\\
