In addition to new works the company has regularly re-released classic older SF works. Some of the earlier re-issues of the works by Creator/RandallGarrett and Creator/JamesHSchmitz caused a huge furor, in large part because Creator/EricFlint, as the editor, publicly described his editing policy around 2000, earning him the nickname "Eric the Butcher". (In fact, many of the edits were to change characters into [[NoSmoking non-smokers]].) It was probably no worse than any other editing policy, but it might have shown the inside of the sausage machine too closely.

In addition to the Free Library, Baen also has included [=CDs=] bound into the hardback first editions of certain books (usually from popular series like the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' or ''Literature/VorkosiganSage'' novels) which feature the complete collection of novels from that series to date, along with (often) several other novels by the same author. Each CD prominently displays the license "This disk and its contents may be copied and shared, but NOT sold. All commercial rights reserved." As such, several websites have collected archives of the Baen [=CDs=]; the most famous is [[http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/ BaenCD at The Fifth Imperium]]. Beware: the sheer number of different novels available for free on that site can cause an ArchiveBinge ''worse than discovering TVTropes for the first time''. Yes, you read that right.
