Jim Baen (1943-2006)

It's just been reported on SFF Net that science fiction editor and publisher Jim Baen has died.

David Drake has a memorial here; I'm sure there will be others.

I never met him, but I'm grateful for much of what he did. In particular, he was the editor who first published the collections of Spider Robinson's Callahan series, and those stories helped me through a lot.
