rss feed for authors' new books?

I read a lot of serial genre fiction, specifically science fiction and fantasy. I'm currently reading a lot of series and some of them don't get new books very often. I sometimes completely miss new books. Is there some resource, preferably Google Reader compatible, that will allow me to just maintain a list of authors, and have it tell me when a new book is out? Amazon doesn't seem to have specific author/series searches. There was this question, but it's old, Amazon specific, for subjects not authors, and the answer no longer works. Assuming there's no such resource, would you use such a service?
