This week, a lot of the news has been All Hillary, All The Time, but still I have some other interesting tidbits to report. Let’s get started:
When Electric Literature was no longer releasing their print volumes with five stories each, and were instead focusing on their Recommended Reading project, I had two issues left in my paid subscription.

Greetings, all. This week’s Friday News Bites are rather heavy on the Indiana-specific content, for a number of reasons, but we have some other governmental and entertainment matters to cover as well. Let’s get started:
In 2014, Titan Comics began publishing new Doctor Who adventures, taking over the reins from IDW, the publisher who handled the property’s comics through the show’s 50th anniversary.

I had a chance to interview the writer, Cavan Scott, over email regarding his story process, as well as some additional thoughts on Doctor Who as a whole.
Happy Friday, everyone. Is it Springtime where you are yet? I hope so. This week’s newsy roundup has a lot of political stories, but we’ll end with good news. Let’s get started: Read More Friday News Bites: Indiana’s Discrimination Bill, Germanwings Crash + More
