Yes, as has finally been officially announced, Jim is in the hospital. He was not feeling well on Monday, so Dave Drake drove him to the hospital, where he suffered a stroke. Best place to have a stroke, if you have to have one...in the hospital.

As Toni Weisskopf and others have posted elsewhere, Baen Publishing Enterprises LLC, and Jim Baen's Universe magazine are operating normally under very detailed contingency plans Jim put together several years ago. We're all working just as if the GE was sitting in the corner office bellowing orders.

Regarding cards, calls, and flowers, since Jim is in ICU, the family and Baen staff are requesting that they not be sent.

Arnold Bailey has opened up a conference at Baen's Bar (http://bar.baen.com) called Waiting Room for messages of support and so forth. Feel free to use the Waiting Room in lieu of sending cards and flowers to the hospital.

Waiting is.

Thanks, Walt. I shall lurk. And send healing thoughts.

Yeah...I've been watching the Waiting Room board too. Thanks for posting an official announcement. I hope the next update is to announce that he is making a quick recovery.
