Calibre is one of the best eBook management software available right now, but its strength lies in the abundance of plugins available for it.

This week we’ll take a look at an interesting extension called "FictionDB." According to the developer, this plugin allows users to retrieve book metadata from the www.fictiondb.com website.

The fictiondb.com website provides good descriptions for books, and tags for genre, sub-genre, and time period. It also supports multiple types of series, from several authors and publishers.

It can be easily installed from the Preferences menu or from the official forum, and it needs version 0.8 or higher of Calibre. A comprehensive tutorial about its usage can also be found on the above forums.
