Jim Baen has had a stroke

Verified through several sources now, Jim Baen, the publisher of Baen Books, suffered a stroke on Monday of this week and has remained in a coma since.

Jim was my first publisher, and someone I adored, enjoyed, and liked working with. Though our association cooled quite a few years ago (on his part, not mine), he remains someone I admire and to whom I am deeply grateful.

If you pray, please put him in your prayers. If you light candles or in other ways move the quantum forces around, please do that. He’s a good man, and I wish him a full recovery.
