Jim Minz

jimJames Minz has been an editor in genre publishing for nearly twenty years, and is currently Senior Editor with Baen Books (with previous stints at Del Rey and Tor). He has worked Catherine Asaro, Hal Duncan, Eric Flint, Terry Goodkind, Elizabeth Haydon, Nancy Kress, Elizabeth Moon, Mark Van Name, Frederik Pohl, John Ringo, Robert J. Sawyer, Travis S. Taylor, Harry Turtledove, David Weber, Jack Williamson, Gene Wolfe, and Timothy Zahn, among many, many others.

Jim is a passionate fan of football, science fiction and fantasy, and a sometimes Heisman Trophy impersonator, who has come a long way from West Bend, Wisconsin to his new post as Baen Senior Editor, with stops along the way at Bluejay Books (sort of), Tor, and Del Rey. Since he admits to being a mutant, he might have ended up with the X-Men, but he chose instead to hang out with even more bizarre beings in the world of SF and fantasy publishing, even starting his own corner of the Baen.com website,Minz’s Biergarten, which he will be operating with his own unique combination of talent and energy.
