Fafnir665: Should I have given away the entire plot, including how the problem was solved?

No, but you left out the whole point of the story, and made it look like humans had made this source of energy.
Book: Golden Witchbreed by Mary Gentle

The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
could go on....tend to enjoy the older stuff quite a lot, Earth Abides, Last and First Men, Foundation, etc. Oh Oryx and Crake by Atwood is awesome.
SF music?! Dr. Who sound track as previously mentioned.
lagoa89, Earth Abides. That was about the virus that killed off almost all humanity right? The protagonist was a man who chronicled everything with regards to how earth readjusted to the absence of the bulk of humanity. Yes, I really enjoyed that. I just read that a few months back. I'm really getting into the older sci-fi now too.
Andre Norton is currently on my "like" list. The X-Factor and Star Gate recently. She had some interesting ideas. In fact, I think it is time for me to get into bed and read some more of Star Gate. Night all.
I can't remember what killed off humanity, it was a virus or something and it intimated at some sort of nuclear war or testing. I loved it although it was quite sad. The protagonist was so desperate to sustain civilisation and knowledge and in the end his legacy was significant. It was written 1924 or thereabouts and Last and First Men was written about that time too. That book blew my mind, EVERY page could have been an entire SF film. Outstanding, without a doubt the most imaginative Sf book I have ever read.
Its 11:47 in the morning here, I take it its late where you are Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
book - "West of Eden" series by Harry Harrison and several short stories by H.P. Lovecraft (like "Colour out of space" and "The whisperer in darkness")
(I haven't really read so much sci-fi as I would have liked (DUNE for example), because there is almost none good one translated into Latvian, and I have little money to order from Amazon)
movie - "White Dwarf", "Immortel Ad Vitam", "Star Wars" (Empire strikes back), DUNE 2000, also "Avalon" and "Nirvana" of course, Dog Soldiers too (if you call that sci-fi), "Kin Dza Dza", "Mad Max 2" ... Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I like many, could call many more
music - as already proposed "The songs of distant Earth" by Mike Oldfield
Yeah, it was 5:47 AM here when I wrote that. Way past any normal bedtime. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I should list my favs:
Book - Psion and Catspaw (Alien Blood) by Joan D. Vinge. (I hear there is a 3rd one out now too. Can't wait.)
Movie - Dune, the orginal, and K-PAX. (Legend was quite good too, though that is fantasy.)
Music - SF Music? What? I guess the soundtrack for The Wall by Pink Floyd (that can be considered sci-fi, right?).
Thats the book where the dinosaurs didnt go extinct, developed bio-tech, and were defeated by fire, correct?
Yes, the same.
Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card, and basically the entire Ender Series. I don't read much SF but I read these when I was 12-14 and Ender's Game remains my favorite book to date. So magical! I want to go to battle school... Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
I lik eher husbands work more, but I hear theyve done some colab work Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Books: Asimov's Foundation novels; KSR's Mars trillogy also ranks up there.
How about two of the original 50's great Sci-fi movies 'The Thing' or the 'Creeping Unknown'? Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
I haven't read or watched much sci-fi. But I'll say my favorites of what I have read and watched.
I love Fahrenheit 451 because of the style it's written in. It's hard to describe... It's so poetically abstract, yet at the same time the imagery is solid in your head. I haven't finished reading it, but I want to. I also really liked 2001: A Space Odyssey and Ender's Game.
I probably should've picked one book. Too bad.
My favorite movie? One movie that comes to mind, I want to say it's Mission to Mars, but I'm not entirely sure. It's from the 90s. They go to Mars and learn that the face on Mars was left there by the ancient race that used to live there, who seeded the Earth with their DNA.
Book: I am Legend - Richard Matheson
Book(s) - The Animorph series, by KA Applegate, and The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. I haven't found any other sci-fic enjoyable.
Movies - The Matrix trilogy.
