Nice idea. I wonder if there is a "better" source of that data for new releases in terms of identifying for an author what they have released recently/upcoming etc. FantasticFiction is fine but the data is unstructured, I dunno if Amazon has a "structured" source of the data either.

I keep my favourite authors in a user category, I think it would be great from time to time to be able to use a plugin to find out what books they have coming out or that I may have missed without having to one by one look them up...
