Toni Weisskopf

Toni Weisskopf is a long time Southern fan, reader of Science Fiction and an Executive Editor at  Baen Books.  Over the years, Toni has worked with such luminaries as David Weber, David Drake, Lois McMaster Bujold, Eric Flint, to name but a few.  Under the name T.K.F. Weisskopf, she is co-editor, with Greg Cox, of two SF anthologies for Baen: Tomorrow Sucks and Tomorrow Bites, about vampires and werewolves respectively.  With Josepha Sherman she compiled and annotated the definitive volume of subversive children's folklore, Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts, published by August House.  In June 2004 Baen will be publishing a collection of all new stories Toni edited: Cosmic Stories: Adventures in Sol Space.

Toni is the first winner of the Triple Crown of Southern awards, with the Phoenix and Rebel Awards given by the DeepSouthCon, and the Rubble Award.  Other fannish achievements include having been Official Editor of SFPA, continuous publication of her SFPAzine "Yngvi is a Louse" for over ten years, editing the 1997 SFC Handbook and History, and a charter member of NASFA.

Toni is a graduate of Oberlin College with a degree in anthropology, the mother of a delightful daughter, the wife of Hank Reinhardt, himself a long-time Southern fan.  Rumor also has it that in addition to all of these fantastic feats she also is known to play hostess and organizer for some of the greatest parties ever hosted by a publisher.   

Note:  From the Fancyclopedia: Yngvi - (de Camp) - The only thing we are told about Yngvi is that a little fellow in the Giant's prison of "The Roaring Trumpet" came to the front of his cell every hour on the hour and yelled "Yngvi is a LOUSE!" The mystery has fascinated fandom, and Yngvi turns up in all sorts of places. Frequently the statement that he is a louse is taken literally; sometimes Yngvi is confused with the little guy who didn't like him; and once it was said that Yngvi is a Type Fifteen fan. Elmer Perdue has been the leading defender of him or it, asserting by stickers and otherwise that "Yngvi is NOT a louse!" At the Denvention, Rothman made a motion to the effect that Yngvi is not a louse, but it was defeated. A motion was then passed stating that Rothman is a louse.
