Arthur C. Clarke wrote the novel version of 2001 in conjunction with
the filming (which was based on an earlier short story of his).  There
are some differences between novel and film, but each stands on its own
in its own way as the product of Clarke and Kubrick respectively.  And,
of course, it also aided with the marketing.
