Per David Drakes newsletter...(quoted)
'My friend Jim Baen passed away peacefully and with dignity at 5 pm yesterday, June 28, 2006.
Well, it was always on the cards, but you know, I was hoping for a miracle. Not expecting, but hoping. Drat. How come I got one and he didn't? If there is an Almighty, I'm going to have some serious words to Him about His allocation of miracles, I don't think He does a very fair job of it at all.
Bye Jim. Thanks for the books.
