The latest BSFA mailing arrived with the post this morning! I’d been expecting it any day now for the last week or so, after it been sent off to the black box of the publisher. And here it is, Focus (TOC) and Vector both.
This quarter’s Vector is primarily devoted to Diana Wynne Jones, who died in March this year. When I started putting the issue together, I’d hoped she would be with us for years to come, that she would be able to see the issue for herself. Instead, it became a memorial issue to a much-missed author whose influence was formative for many (including me).
Vector 268 contains…
2011 BSFA Awards – Donna Scott
An Excerpt from a Conversation with Diana Wynne Jones – Charlie Butler
Translating Diana Wynne Jones – Gili Bar-Hillel Semo

Excellent issue, many thanks.
I haven’t received my mailing yet. Should it have gone out, or have I been left off the mailing list. (Sorry to contact you here but I could not get through on the BSFA contact page.)
Al R – Thank you!
Allan – I’ve forwarded your question to those responsible for membership lists and mailings, so hopefully you’ll hear back soon one way or another.
