Dave Drake and Toni Weisskopf have asked that in lieu of other remembrances, you go out and buy a copy of The World Turned Upside Down and donate it to your local library in his memory.
Remembrances of Jim’s life will be held at Trinoc*Con in Raleigh, NC Saturday, July 22 and Lacon IV, the Worldcon, in Los Angeles, CA in August.
The surviving partners of Baen and his heirs intend to continue Jim’s legacy of innovative, independent publishing. Longtime Baen Books executive editor Toni Weisskopf will be acting publisher and will direct day-to-day operation of the company.
In addition, attention will be paid at the Jim Baen’s Universe Universe Club Gathering at CONvergence in Minneapolis, MN July 7-9. If you plan to be there, please join Eric Flint, David Weber, Paula Goodlett, Rick Boatright and myself in the Universe Club Suite so we can hoist a glass in Jim’s memory.
