Legendary science fiction editor and publisher Jim Baen has passed away last night after suffering a stroke last week. David Drake (david-drake.com) has got a great obituary up that summarizes just how important Jim Baen was to the industry and to developing new authors. Taking a quick glance at my library, it's amazing how many of those books have the oh so recognizable Baen Books logo on the spine and how much poorer my life would be without the authors he helped to find and nurture.

If you haven't looked at it before, today would be a good day to check out a very small part of his legacy at The Free Library (baen.com) and (re)discover some great science fiction.

God speed Mr. Baen
