RIP Eric Flint

His death has been announced on social media.
For example, here is a post from Robert J. Sawyer.

Without him, there would have been no Baen Free Library. Not to mention Ring of Fire anthologies. And Ring of Fire Press.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I enjoyed his novels, and his many collaborations.

He was also solidly against DRM on ebooks, and appreciated that copyright was a two-sided bargain. An all-round good egg.

I too will miss him. I always looked forward to his books and have reread many of them.

I've enjoyed many of his books from Mother of Demons on. He will be missed by many.

Quite a few tweets visible on the Baen website and this tweet on the Baen Books twitter.

There is also a GoFundMe to help support his wife with memorial expenses Eric Flint.

I just started reading one of his books recently, first time I read one of his works, but it won't be the last. Sorry to see he passed away.

Dang!
I just checked my Library. I have quite a collection with him as an author
12 Paperbacks
77 E-books (Baen Bundles account for many as most of the Free Library ones are tallied under Paper, where I first read them)

A bunch more where he was the editor.

Do read his rant on DRM (The FAQ page at Baen is not working for me, so no link)
RIP Eric, we will toast you at the Bar

I have most of his books even in paper. He was an author I would buy immediately when released.

@gbm
Thanks for the links.
Baen was the first place I hit after getting my first e-reader (I had a 1/2 ton of their paperbacks already )
