Toni Weisskopf succeeded Jim Baen as publisher of Baen Books where she serves as executive editor. She has worked with Toastmaster Mark L. Van Name, David Weber, David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, Eric Flint, Wen Spencer, and many others. With Josepha Sherman she compiled and annotated the definitive volume of subversive children’s folklore, Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts, published by August House, now in its third printing. For Baen she’s edited three original hard sf anthologies: Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Sol System, Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Far Futures and most recently Transhuman, with our Toastmaster.
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 sixteen-year old daughter, and is possessed by a truly devilish little dog, and a fat and lazy cat who styles himself a “rare white mini-puma.”
