How do we achieve true diversity in the Australian media - and why is it important? **Fatima Measham** looks at the gap between the cultural make-up of Australia and of our media, and asks what we can do to close that gap, and make sure we have a wider variety of voices and experiences representing us., **Justine Larbalestier** is sick of reading reviews that assess books based on the 'likeability' of their characters. As someone who enjoys reading books about vile people she wouldn't actually want to spend time with in real life, she explains why 'likeability' is not a requirement for good fiction. , How has publishing changed since 1996, the time of *My Salinger Year*? Find out why tourists are visiting war zones for kicks. Meet the anarchist duo behind the 3D printable gun and other dangerous technologies. Liam Piper on Portugal's decriminalisation of drugs for personal use. And look ahead at the ten most anticipated Australian books of the second half of 2014. and **Josephine Rowe** describes the way a bone-chilling Montreal winter seeps into her soul, making her writing life more intensely insular.
