No, not empty! To start, the two I have already mentioned match my criterion - 'Contact' and '2001', although '2001' was a film before it was a book. There many examples, like the original H. G. Wells 'War of the Worlds', 'The Mote in God's Eye', 'The Tommyknockers' and even TV dramas like 'Quatermass and the pit'.

The one thing I will concede is that the majority have one thing in common - earth science is pretty much 'present day', with the science fiction bit coming from an alien civilization.
