Toni Weisskopf is publisher of Baen Books. She has worked with such authors as David Weber, David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, Eric Flint, John Ringo, Sarah A. Hoyt, Larry Corriea, and many others. With Josepha Sherman she compiled and annotated the definitive volume of subversive children's folklore, Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts, published by August House. For Baen she's edited three original hard sf anthologies: Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Sol System, Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Far Futures and Transhuman, with sf author Mark L. Van Name.

Baen is also known for its innovative e-publishing program, which has expanded under Weisskopf's leadership to include not only titles published by Baen, but also titles from other publishers, all without DRM.

Weisskopf is a graduate of Oberlin College with a degree in anthropology. The widow of Southern fan and swordmaster Hank Reinhardt, she is the mother of a delightful daughter, and is possessed by a truly devilish little dog, and a fat and lazy cat who styles himself a "rare white mini-puma."
