Mistress of Ceremonies

Toni Weisskopff

For us at Con†Stellation, Toni Weisskopf may be the epitome of a hometown gal woman person hero made good. OK, so Huntsville isn't actually her home town, but she moved here with her family at age 12 and credits our fair city as the place she discovered fandom. After graduating from Oberlin College she joined Baen Books (in 1987) where she rose through the ranks from editorial assistant to editor to executive editor. She took the reins as publisher after the death of founder Jim Baen in 2006.

Toni has kept Baen Books one of the leading lights in sf and fantasy since then and shows no signs of slowing down. When you talk to her at Con†Stellation about the stellar list of authors she's worked with (David Weber, Mercedes Lackey, David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, Eric Flint, Wen Spencer, Larry Correia, Charles E. Gannon—just to name a few); about just anything to do with sf/f publishing; or about fannish history (her bona fides in fannish publishing are as strong as in professional publishing and she was one of the driving forces bringing DeepSouthCon back to Huntsville for its 50th incarnation in 2012.

You can read more about Toni Weisskopf in a Locus Magazine interview or visit the Baen Books website here.
