Founding of Baen Books

Baen Books was founded in 1983 out of a negotiated agreement between Jim Baen and Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster was undergoing massive reorganization and wanted to hire Jim Baen to head up and revitalize their Science Fiction line in their Pocket Books division. Jim Baen, with financial backing from some friends, counter-offered with a proposal to start up a new company named Baen Books and provide Simon & Schuster with an SF line to distribute instead.[1] James Patrick Jim Baen (b. ...

The market for SF in America

In 2004, more than 2,500 titles in the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror were published in the U.S. by 248 publishers. According to the "2004 Book Summary" (Locus February, 2005. Vol. 54. No. 2, 50/54), Baen Books was the ninth most active publisher in terms of most books published in the genres indicated, and the fifth most active publisher of the dedicated SF imprints, publishing a total of 67 titles (of which 40 were original titles). It is difficult to judge the issue of quality but, based on the number of times a title published by Baen Books appeared in the bestseller lists produced by the major bookselling chains, it is ranked the seventh most popular SF publisher. In 2005, (Locus February 2006, Vol.56, No.2, 50/53) Baen improved to eighth position in the total books published with 72 books published (of which 40 were original titles). It was the sixth most active publisher of the dedicated SF imprints, and the fifth most popular SF publisher based on the number of bestseller list appearances.

Electronic publishing strategy

Baen Books may justly claim an innovative approach to marketing through the internet on several levels.

  • all books are unencrypted -- not "protected" by DRM
  • all books are available in a variety of formats -- pick the format that suits you best
  • the books are priced reasonably -- at or under the cost of a paperback book
  • Baen also provides "its books to fans who are blind, paralyzed, or dyslexic, or are amputees, in electronic form free of charge, effective immediately.", as announced on November 14, 2006 on its webscriptions portal.

All of these policies are in stark contrast to those of most other publishers, who have entered the electronic publishing market in a manner that can be judged as less enthusiastic (obviously fearful of the ways in which computer users can redistribute digital versions of copyrighted works via Usenet postings with binary content attachments or peer-to-peer [P2P] file sharing). The supposition at Baen Books has been that these sales to the ebook-buying community helps to stimulate an online "word-of-mouth" advertising effect. Digital rights management (DRM) is an umbrella term that refers to access control technologies used by publishers and other copyright holders to limit usage of digital media or devices. ... is the 318th day of the year (319th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

File sharing is the activity of making files available to other users for download over the Internet, but also over smaller networks. ...


At the same time, the availability of these high quality digital files discourage clumsy bootlegging by way of scanning and encoding printed pages (something to which the works of all publishers are subject today), ensuring that copyright violaters who do download digital versions of Baen's intellectual properties don't encounter technical glitches that they subconsciously associate with QA failings on the part of Baen Books. The Cathach of St. ... The introduction to this article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject matter. ...


Besides, Jim Baen had concluded, many of the e-book readers "recrutited" either through purchase or piracy would want to own printed copies of the books they favored most. James Patrick Jim Baen (b. ...


His faith in his patrons (and in his knowledge of fannish psychology) has been more than justified. Here are some of the specific projects introduced by Baen Books: Science fiction fandom or SF fandom is the community of people actively interested in science fiction and fantasy literature, and in contact with one another based upon that interest. ...


Free Sample Chapters

From the publication schedule on the main Baen Web site, readers can view sample chapters of many upcoming works. This is a practice growing more common among other publishers (in print and online), but typically making only the first chapter or two available. In contrast, Baen Books releases as much as one quarter of the upcoming book for open viewing.


Webscriptions

Baen Books had primarily been a paperback publishing house until 1999, when Webscriptions was introduced. For a fee, a customer subscribes to a set of approximately five novels and/or anthologies "bundled" electronically in a discounted package that differs from one month to another. Each package is commonly a mix of new releases and older titles, with the upcoming works released to the subscriber in increments in advance of the publication month. The common scheduling method is to make the work available for download in HTML-only encoding with the first two portions (50% of the work two months in advance, 75% becoming accessible one month prior to bookshelf release), and then the complete text becomes available in multiple digital formats in the month of publication. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article may require cleanup. ... This article is about the year. ... Baen Webscriptions is an experiment in electronic publishing. ... A novel (from French nouvelle Italian novella, new) is an extended, generally fictional narrative, typically in prose. ... An anthology, literally a garland or collection of flowers, is a collection of literary works, originally of poems. ... HTML, short for Hypertext Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for the creation of web pages. ...


The subscription aspect of the term "Webscription" refers not only to this serial manner of release, but also to the way in which the purchaser is obliged to accept all of the selections in a particular monthly package, in much the same way as he/she would accept all of an editor's choices when buying a copy of a monthly science fiction magazine. This actively encourages purchasers to read outside their usual preferences by making available to them works by authors (and subgenres of speculative fiction) that would not likely have come into their hands any other way. Oct. ... Speculative fiction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ...


The "Webscription" service is not (at the time of this writing) set up on a push basis, and the purchaser must actively log in at the Web site periodically to check on the availability of each increment. This has the effect of obliging customers to see what upcoming monthly packages are scheduled, and enables Baen Books to easily advertise the new titles coming up the publishing pipeline. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Push media. ...


All of the packages offered since the onset of the Webscription service (December 1999) are available for purchase. Given that the common practice in the publishing industry is to allow midlist titles to go out-of-print less than a year after release, this sort of easy digital availability is regarded by many readers as an important convenience. This page is a candidate to be moved to Wiktionary. ...


Baen Free Library

The Baen Free Library allows free access to dozens of titles (more than eighty at the time of this writing) from the company's backlist. Each such title is made available only with the permission of the author (or, in come cases, the author's estate). These are usually the first work of a series written by that author, and serves as an easily accessible (and very attractive) sample of the multivolume offering. The Baen Free Library is a digital library of the science fiction and fantasy publishing house Baen Books where (as of June 2005) 77 full books are available for free download in a number of formats, without copy protection. ...


This strategy has seen commercial success, with sales improved not only within the supported series but also through increased author exposure. As with the Webscriptions titles, readers commonly use the free access mechanism to sample an unfamiliar writer or a series of works before purchasing hardcopy editions. The Baen Free Library is a digital library of the science fiction and fantasy publishing house Baen Books where (as of June 2005) 77 full books are available for free download in a number of formats, without copy protection. ...


Interestingly, the subsequent sales among these free-access titles has proven to be surprisingly better than might have been expected, raising them to a kind of "evergreen" status by enabling them to attract new readers.


At least one author has disagreed with the universally-applied electronic rights Baen Books policy, under past contract restrictions, and as such removed backlist and any future books from the publisher.[citation needed]


E-ARC

In publishing, an ARC is an Advance Reader Copy (sometimes called "bound galleys"). These are short-run, printed (but not fully copyedited) editions of the book. These are usually handed out for promotional or review purposes. An E-ARC is the electronic equivalent -- not fully copyedited, but available well ahead of the formal release date. This, however, sells for a premium price compared to the other e-books offered by Baen Books (the E-ARC price of a title is comparable to that of a hardback edition, and this purchase does not entitle the customer to access the finished e-book versions of the title when they become available).


This notwithstanding, this sort of offering satisfies the desires of the most avid readers of an author or a series, who are perfectly willing to pay extra for the sort of "first look" privileges access to an ARC confers.


The Grantville Gazette

Many forms of literature will generate discussion far beyond the narrow circle of writers and editors responsible for what goes between the covers. One of the surprising developments following the publication of the novel 1632 (in February 2000) has been the proliferation of fan fiction set in the same 1632 series plenum and interest in active collaboration with the authors enrolled in expanding this bestselling series. Main articles: 1632 series and The Grantville Gazettes 1632 is the initial novel in the best selling alternate history genre 1632 book series set in the Holy Roman Empire by historian, writer and editor Eric Flint. ... Fan fiction (also spelled fanfiction and commonly abbreviated to fanfic) is fiction written by people who enjoy a film, novel, television show or other media work, using the characters and situations developed in it and developing new plots in which to use these characters. ... The 1632 series, also known as the 1632-verse or Ring of Fire series, is an alternate history book series, created, primarily co-written-by and coordinated by historian Eric Flint. ...


This phenomenon, coupled with Baen Books editors' Internet savvy and their accessibility in online discussion groups maintained by the company, resulted in the development of a subsidiary series of irregularly published electronic anthologies, The Grantville Gazettes. E-publishing brought with it relatively low costs, enabling Baen Books to collect into each edition short fiction (most of it fanfic) and factual articles pertinent to everything from 17th Century history and technology to conditions in the stratosphere during that era which would make communication by radio over long distances more difficult than it is today. Fan fiction (also spelled fanfiction and commonly abbreviated to fanfic) is fiction written by people who enjoy a film, novel, television show or other media work, using the characters and situations developed in it and developing new plots in which to use these characters. ...


These proved far more successful than the publisher and the editors had anticipated, and several volumes of The Grantville Gazette have been uttered in hardcover editions with good returns. (See: 1632 Editorial Board for detail). This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... This article is a sub-article of the 1632 series of articles and in particular of the Grantville Gazettes historic role in collaborative authorship of complex fiction. ...


Promotional CD-ROMs

Baen Books also binds CD-ROMs into some of their hardcover first printings (including best selling titles by David Weber, John Ringo, Eric Flint, David Drake, and Mercedes Lackey. These CD-ROMs commonly contain the complete series of novels preceding the printed book (for those books that were the latest in a series), other works by the same author, and works by other authors who have consented to be included. Some also contain mp3 songs or audiobook readings. The CD-ROMs are prominently labelled with a permissive copyright license and their rapid copying by peer-to-peer networks, and streaming via BitTorrent has represented significant free advertising for Baen authors and increased sales of their backlist titles.

Jim Baen's Universe

Baen's latest endeavor in electronic publishing is Baen's Universe, an anthology magazine published entirely on-line. As with all other Baen electronic material, it is unencrypted and downloadable in a variety of formats. The content of an issue of Baen's Universe is roughly 120,000 words (some earlier issues are more). This is approximately 50% larger than the average paper science fiction & fantasy magazine.
