HarperCollins Debuts OpenBook API Beta

via a Programmable Web Post by Curtis Chen:

The developer site is still a bit raw, with some broken links and less-than-polished documentation, but the data available is quite comprehensive. The OpenBook API offers not only information on HarperCollins authors and books in US and international markets, but also author tour information. Want to know when best-selling science fiction author Kevin J. Anderson is coming to town, what the cover of his latest book looks like, and how many pages long it is?  The OpenBook API has all that information and more.  HarperCollins and its subsidiaries publish in a wide variety of genres, from fiction to cookbooks to biographies, so there should be something for everyone to love in here.
