I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Toni Weisskopf, the publisher of Baen Books, for her willingness to take on this project. She’s made it easy. I owe another big debt to Hank Davis for all the materials he sent, and all of the letters pointing me in the right direction. Thanks to everyone else at Baen Books for all they’ve done to help bring this project to fruition.

A large number of others have helped along the way. I’m sure I’m going to miss a few of you, and I’m sorry for that. Many thanks to Ann and Jeff VanderMeer for helping with a story and for . . . well, you know. Thanks to Stephen Haffner, Mike Resnick, Rick Katze, David G. Grubbs, Vaughne Hansen, Betsy Mitchell, Judy Cashner, and Allyson Longuiera for helping with the stories. Thanks to Jean Rabe, Keith West, Todd McCaffrey, and Eileen Gunn for answering questions I had quickly.

A big thanks to the visitors to the Women in Science Fiction website I started along with this project. I appreciate all of your suggestions and your support.
