James Minz

Baen Books Executive Editor James Minz has worked in genre publishing for more than two decades, beginning his career as a freelancer working for a freelance editor of Tor Books, moving on to a salaried editorial position with Tor, then Del Rey (SF/F imprint of Random House), until finally, on the centennial of Robert A. Heinlein's birth, landing at Baen Books.

He likes to stick his nose into just about everything, which fits in well with his duties at the leading independent SF publisher in the USA, including his primary work as Executive Editor and Subsidiary Rights Director.

Over the years, Minz has worked with Catherine Asaro, Larry Correia, Hal Duncan, Eric Flint, Terry Goodkind, Elizabeth Haydon, Nancy Kress, Mercedes Lackey, Elizabeth Moon, Frederik Pohl, John Ringo, Robert J. Sawyer, Travis S. Taylor, Harry Turtledove, Mark L. Van Name, Vernor Vinge, David Weber, Jack Williamson, Gene Wolfe, and Timothy Zahn, among many, many, many others. His vices remain SF/F, animation, Wisconsin sports teams, role-playing games, quality beer and booze, sweets (especially chocolate), and the lamented The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
