Jim Baen's Universe

Premiering June 2006, Jim Baen's Universe is a professional science fiction magazine published online bi-monthly.

"We believe in stories.

"We believe in stories, short and long.

"We promise to publish stories that keep you turning the (electronic) page, stories with characters and feeling similar to those of popular novels. Many of the stories, in fact, are set in universes already popular in novel form."
