About the Author
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, 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. For Baen she’s edited three original hard SF anthologies: Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Sol System, Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Far Futures and Transhuman, with SF author Mark L. Van Name.
Long active in Southern science fiction fandom, Toni is the first winner of the Triple Crown of Southern awards, having won both the Phoenix and Rebel Awards given by the DeepSouthCon, and been awarded the Rubble, administered by her “friend” Gary Robe.
Weisskopf is a graduate of Oberlin College with a degree in anthropology. The widow of Southern fan and swordmaster Hank Reinhardt, she is the mother of a delightful daughter, and lives in a hundred-year-old house with two cats and too many dogs.
Christopher Woods has been an avid reader his entire life.
