Another short straw for short fiction

In recent years a fair chunk of my short SF has appeared in Jim Baen's Universe. JBU has been an excellent, thoroughly professional venue -- and now, alas, it's closing. JBU will be missed, as the market for short SF keeps shrinking ...

But it's not about me. My sympathies go out to the editors and staff at JBU. They produced a first-rate product and treated their authors with courtesy and respect. They deserved a happier outcome. Sorry, my friends.

I gather the entire publishing industry is contracting. A very worrysome trend.
