Fiction DB Is Now Free
Fiction DB, a one stop resource of authors, titles, publication dates, and even purchasing, is free. FictionDB used to cost money to see entire backlists of authors and take advantage of its 200,000+ book database. As of Tuesday, May 20, 2008, the entire database is free. This site contains a comprehensive backlist of over 50,000 authors. It tracks upcoming releases.
There is still a subscription service that offers the following services:
- Advertising Free
- Organizing tools such as a bookshelf, wishlist, archive and bookstore
- Ratings for the books
- Advanced search
- Mobile access
- Improved layout (faster access)
You can sign up for a free three day trial. Annual subscriptions cost $29.99.
I just looked up Nora Roberts’ bibliography. Fiction DB has her at 164 titles published since 1981.
Stephanie Laurence: 37 since 1992.
Loretta Chase: 17 since 1989.
This is fun…
FictionDB is without doubt a great source, I have been using it for years. However, during that time I have also come upon quite a number of mistakes, especially where the genre and time period was concerned.
Thanks for letting us know, I love this website to look up books by authors.
I love that Nora Roberts is the default example in the search window!
OMG I am so happy! Now I can find even more books for my growing TBR pile.
Hmmm maybe this isn’t a good idea for me. LOL
Thank you so much! Now I have an easy way to find/track new releases, rather than begging Amazon for the information.
I started subscribing to Fiction DB in early 2007. I love this site. I have entered all the books that I recorded on paper that I have read.
The lists for series romances are a great source. Every book that I had read is not in the database, but I can email the site about them.
I have contacted the administrators about errors. They have followed up very efficiently.
