The Overlooked...

We receive a lot of e-mail regarding recommendations for new features. Usually it is something that we've already thought about and put on the enhancement list or rejected as not something we see for FictionDB. But every once in a while, someone e-mails us with something that we'd just plain missed. This happened recently with the Anthology section of our site.

I read anthologies by author. I will read the stories by the authors that I like and then discard the book. So when I designed the anthology section, I designed it for me and the way I read anthologies. Obviously a big mistake! I have now rectified this problem. You will find a new anthology title search area on the Advanced Search page. For those of you using the Bookshelf area of FictionDB, you can now search your personal collection by ISBN which will find the anthology for you.

The ISBN searches throughout the site are now tied to the reissue data, so typing in an ISBN for any issue of a book should pull up the main FictionDB listing. If we're missing an ISBN, please let us know. The reissue data is the newest on our site and so may not be completely up-to-date.

So, if there's something you'd really like to see on FictionDB, let us know! Maybe we haven't thought of it yet.
