Any idea what the typical delay between acquisition and publishing was back in the early 1980s? I have a (January 1984) books from Ace that really feels like Jim Baen would have acquired it but he founded Baen in 1983.

I also had several books ready, but Ace was unimpressed.

It's a good point about Baen's just starting up then and therefore not having a huge backlog. Also, I think they probably recognized a unique talent. But my recollection, for which I have sadly no other immediate specifics to back it up, is that Baen was generally much faster than other publishers.

Also, speaking as someone who worked production for Baen, Jim kept us under a (sometimes brutally) tight schedule on the production end of things.
