The Internet Speculative Fiction Database looks like a bit of a winner to me. It's a community effort to catalogue works of fiction and links together types of bibliographic data such as author bibliographies, publication bibliographies, awards, magazine content listings, anthology contents and forthcoming books. I checked out the entry for Iain Banks which gave me a cross reference to Iain M Banks, which listed his wikipedia entry, IMDB entry, web page (which actually isn't his and wasn't working anyway), series, novels and collections. The one shame is that there wasn't much detail, other than bare bones factual stuff - a short synopsis would have been nice.
However, it's still a useful resource if you're into speculative fiction. Which isn't the same as science fiction, oh no.
