The reading list can be found here. Locus 613 (the February issue) has also been published, although the site has not been updated with it yet, and this issue has a summation of the science fiction publishing year amongst other things. It reports that the BFSA experiment in direct selling with Vector 268 (the Diana Wynne Jones special issue) moved almost 10% more copies than usual.
As always, I highly recommend Locus to everyone who is serious about science fiction. It is essential.

Vector 268 has no less than six articles on the late Diana Wynne Jones. There are also regular columns from Stephen Baxter, Paul Kincaid, Andy Sawyer and Terry Martin, and the start of a new series of articles on reproduction in science fiction. You will also find plenty of book reviews, including my review of David Wingrove’s Son Of Heaven. Use the links for further details.
This mailing also has the latest issue of BSFA writer’s magazine, Focus 57, which has articles by Alastair Reynolds, David Rain, Paul Graham Raven, Gary Budgen, Christopher Priest, Keith Brooke, Lavie Tidhar, David L. Clemens and Dev Agarwal.
You should be able to buy this issue of Vector
on its own but, to be on the safe side, join the BSFA
