Toni Weisskopf succeeded Jim Baen as publisher of Baen Books, a leading publisher of SF and fantasy, in 2006. She has worked with such authors as David Weber, David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, Eric Flint, Wen Spencer, Larry Correia, Charles E. Gannon, and many others. With Josepha Sherman she compiled and annotated the definitive volume of subversive children’s folklore, Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts, originally published by August House. With Christopher Woods she edited Give Me LibertyCon.
Baen is also known for its innovative e-publishing program, which has expanded under Weisskopf’s leadership to include not only titles published by Baen, but also titles from other publishers, all without DRM.
Weisskopf is a graduate of Oberlin College with a degree in anthropology. She is the mother of a delightful daughter, and presides over a household that includes over 200 pounds of dog and under 20 pounds of cat.
