I know a lot of you Earthlings have logged onto this site seeking the devastating wit and incisive political analysis that my fellow InterGalactic Overlords are known and loved for. However, there will be a brief pause to mark the passing of revolutionary science-fiction and fantasy publisher Jim Baen.

He was a maverick and a visionary, publishing a unique style of science-fiction and fantasy that rescued it from the ivory towers of pretentious pseudo-intellectual cliches and put it where it belongs, in the hands of the fans.

On behalf of all my colleagues here at the MoxArgon Group we would like to offer our sincere condolences and sympathy to his family, friends, and fans.

Although we were not lucky enough to know him personally, his work spoke volumes about the kind of man he was, and for that we will all miss him.

Rest in peace Jim Baen, you have been taken too early, but we know that you are in the better place you deserve.
