m. c. de marco: To invent new life and new civilizations...


Via del.icio.us sf: SciFan is a database of science fiction and fantasy, classified by theme, author, series, and more. Although the site looks old and perhaps moribund, they assure readers they’re still active:

We update our database almost daily, with the ambition to make it a comprehensive and accurate resource for bibliographies and biographies in our favorite genres. As of today we include 67385 books, 18275 writers, 8195 series & 4285 web links.

I clicked around and found a few new and forthcoming novels of interest under “themes,” which covers everything from subgenres to settings. I also discovered that Walter Jon Williams has a hardcover coming out from Orbit next year.
