Another one that just sprung into my mind is "The Journey of Joenes" by Robert Sheckley Also, I just read a recent (2011) release called "Robopacalypse" by Daniel H Wilson -- now I want to get his other book called "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" :-)

Excellent book! Not as popular as it should be owing to its being assigned in literature classes :-)

I have never heard of this -- but I just checked on Amazon and it has stellar reviews -- I just added it to my (ever-growing) wish list...

No one has mentioned A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr. (it won a Hugo).

I'd forgotten all about Hothouse -- that was an interesting one... Sorry to say that I never could get excited about Hubbard's writings...

The recent OTB was in colour, 1990s sometime I think, starred Bryan Brown among others. I've never seen the original. Good book, as I remember, but then all of Neville Shute's are good.

Soylent Green was a good film, I seem to remember Max remarking on the bit where Sol dies (to films of Earth when it was beautiful, and Beethoven's "Pastoral" - I liked that too but the way things are going I can see us ending up in something similar. I think SG was based on a Harry Harrison story called "Make room! Make room!" - Yes it was, just wikipedia'd it....
