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.

The delay could be up to two years. However, Baen was often much faster than larger publishers. I remember being so envious of Lois Bujold because Baen had no problem with publishing her first three novels in the space of a single calendar year; whereas Ace/Berkley, even if they had been as excited about my stuff as Baen was about Lois's, which they understandably were not, would have fainted dead on the floor at the very idea.

or the author didn't bother to send it to Baen because he didn't know it was a "Baen Book".

Sounds like Seattle is going the way of SF.
