Writing material for your ending of the universe

BigRipA rocket science friend sent me an article posted on the BBC, titled: “How will the universe end, and could anything survive. “ The article contained some known (Big Crunch, Inflation) and unknown (Heat Death, Phantom Dark Energy) concepts to me. But reading through all of these got me thinking: how many sci-fi works have been written about the end of the universe or at least close to it all ending? The answer is, quite a few.

  • H.G. Wells: The Time Traveler
  • Isaac Asimov: The Last Question
  • Frederick Pohl: World At The End Of Time
  • Poul Anderson: Tau Zero
  • Federico Campagna: The Last Night
  • Charles Sheffield: Tomorrow and Tomorrow; Between The Strokes Of Night
