Writers: Image versus reality

First, the image. A PR photo taken several years ago.

Just curious. Did Jim Baen require an author to have a beard before publishing their books? =D

I'm loving your new posts.

Nah, beards would have looked terrible on the women.

My personal theory is Jim collected a crowd of writers who were too lazy to shave.

Thanks that's my Ironically Self-Referential Hawaiian sport shirt from the Pati Cook Science Fiction Collection.

Pati makes them for me out of "interesting" fabric and I don't just wear them to cons.
