Introduction In January of 2011 we started posting free short stories we thought might be of interest to Baen readers. The first stories were "Space Hero" by Patrick Lundrigan, the winner of the 2010 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Contest, and "Tanya, Princess of Elves," by Larry Correia, author of Monster Hunter International and set in that universe.

This is our compilation of short stories for 2019. As is usual with such copyrighted material from Baen, the contents may be copied and shared but NOT sold.

We were thinking about focusing ourselves completely on Diane's next book: she had already finished two novels and was about to begin her third when she had to put it aside to edit me. Or we were going to try to have a baby.
