Best eulogy I've seen comes from a mailing list for people who met at Baen's Bar: "He was a visionary in a time of small-minded bean-counters looking for a short-term payoff."
This is a sad day indeed...I've gone almost exclusively to Baen these days thanks to their online presence. I've read everything in the free library and bought a whole lot more...here's hoping that his successors can live up to the high standards Mr. Baen inspired.
I'm sorry to hear this.
I too am a big fan of Baen books.

I believe "Protector" was a Baen book as well.
I hope his company lives on..
