Currently reading Death Star by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry. It's really well written, a vast cast of interesting characters but their only unifying feature at this point is their location. It's not my favourite, I'm just not really connecting with it. Which is a shame because Darth Maul and Shadows of the Empire are two of my favourites!
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

The important quote:

Of the 206 negative comments, 61 were real people reported to have a political agenda, 11 were bots and only 33 appeared to be trolls. Of those 33, just 16 appeared to possess characteristics consistent with Russian troll accounts. In reality, less than one in 10 tweets were from Russian trolls -- nowhere near the 50 percent being widely reported.



Thanks, I stand corrected.
