  1. Toni Weisskopf Editor Baen Books
    Jim Mintz Editor Baen Books
    Tony Daniel Editor Baen Books
    Baen publishes some of the best books in the field every year.

    1. Seconded. I’ll have more recommendations later for other categories, but I’ll happily lend my support to every one of Shawn’s recommendations. It doesn’t get any better than that, imo.

  2. Toni Weisskopf, Baen.

    While I have feelings about the Editor categories, especially this one, since the category still exists – Weisskopf should be nominated.

    The reason this is tricky, though, is because it is difficult to know which books are primarily Weisskopf’s and which are those of Minz or Daniel. Because of this, Weisskopf is the face of Baen and gets (and should get) most of the recognition. If there was a good / better way to identify who worked on what this year from Baen we can do a better job of saying that maybe this should be the year of Jim Minz because his books were superior. But we don’t know that – so Toni Weisskopf for Baen (all of the 2015 work).

  3. Toni Weisskopf for all of the reasons listed as well as the simple truth that she was screwed out of the award in 2015. She received more votes for Editor, Long Form than any previous candidate only to be denied due to the infamous Noah Ward hissy fit.
    Add in that Baen has been ignored and disrespected for many years now because wrong fans having wrong fun, it’s about damn time.

  4. Toni Weisskopf, Baen.

    I’m not sure which of Strands of Sorrow, A Long Time Until Now, Dragon in Exile, The Sword of the South, Soldiers Out of Time, A Call to Arms, Raising Caine, and Son of the Black Sword she is responsible for, but I was satisfied by all of them. (Haven’t read Come the Revolution yet.)

  5. I don’t know who edits what, or even exactly what they do back there behind the Walls of Baen, but I do know which publisher I haven’t yet fallen away from buying. So — any of Baen’s editors.
