Favorite Science Fiction Publisher
Baen Books is my favorite science fiction publisher. Baen publishes science fiction and fantasy books exclusively, as far as I can tell. Significantly, Baen believes that e-books are, or will be, a significant distribution mechanism for books. Baen publishes links and, frequently, early chapters of books in their upcoming publishing schedule.
They also have web subscriptions to books that are in the final stages of publishing. Most, or all, of the Baen books are available for purchase on-line at reasonable prices.
In addition, Baen believes that free distribution of some books by an author will encourage the purchase of both those books and subsequent books by the author. The Baen Free Library has a number of free books.
Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time

Before the breaking of the world and the loss of much of mankind's knowledge, and property, some men and women were able to touch the True Source and do magnificent things with the Power. Until they found an apparent well of power and metaphysically drilled a hole into it -- the cell in which the Creator had sealed the Dark One at the moment of Creation. By heroic efforts, the Dark One's prison was resealed.
Whether we call it telekinetics or "using the True Source," for men, the Power was tainted by the Dark One's counter stroke. Men who can touch the source invariably go mad. Women aren't affected as such, but men who can touch the male Power have been weeded out of the gene pool for a thousand years. Now, the Seals are weakening on the Dark One's prison. The Chosen, his 13 male and female lieutenants who can touch and use the source, are again walking the earth.
Into this world come a trio of young farm boys...
