Default "Other" Science Fiction

Now, I know the CofI is a pretty diverse place but clearly it is people from the USA and the UK who dominate these discussions. Nowhere is this more evident in the cultural references that we use to describe the Official Traveller Universe, we usually describe it in terms of books/movies released in either country or have authors that hail from those parts.

Have others come across other literary or movies from not the USA or Great Britain that inspire their campaigns.

I use in my Traveller Universe:

Alexander Beliaev
Kir Bulychev
Nalo Hopkinson
Jiř√▮ Kulh√°nek
Kimmo Lehtonen
Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

several Manga authors notable Makoto Yukimura's Planetes

How about the rest of you?
