New online sf magazine and news of Jim Baen

Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing has just posted news of a new free online sf magazine, Helix, run by Lawrence Watt-Evans and William Sanders. It joins Baen's new one, Baen Universe, though hat one isn't free.

Talking of Baen, Jim Baen has been taken to hospital following a stroke. The company is running under an emergency plan detailed by him. More details on the Neilsen Hayden blog. Please don't send flowers but rather prayers of what ever faith/appropriateness.

Update: Jim Baen died on 28th June.

I spotted that one, looks like it could be a winner. I also stumbled across Helix, a new online quarterly with no fees and no adverts. No idea how long it will last on donations only, but it's nice to think that it might carry on for a while; talk about a test of new business models, eh?
