Rest in Peace

Jim Baen has died. The innovative sf publisher was only fifty years old. David Drake has an obituary up.Link

My connection to Mr. Baen is slim. I submitted stuff to his new magazine for publication hoping to get one of the coveted "Introducing" slots. I exchanged an email or two and a Baen Bar exchange or two and that's it. What it doesn't do is describe the incredible morale boost it was to an aspiring author who struggles to write in the midst of the chaos of three children.

Thank you Jim, you'll be missed.
