Lately, I've noticed that wikipedia is becoming a valuable source of information regarding authors and books.  Anyone here have any experience with it, or made contributions?

Other than that, I use amazon and fantasticfiction.

I LOVE wikipedia!!!  I use Amazon and FantasticFiction when looking for book covers or specific publishing details, but when it comes to the substance of the book wikipedia is great!  The best is that even if wikipedia is lacking each page is usually linked to relevant subjects both within wikipedia and elsewhere on the web.  Even the resources cited can be found most of the time.  It's like an information gateway.
