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!

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.

I'm still working my way through the EU. I have to say I'm becoming a little resentful that we've lost the X-Wing novels from cannon and we won't see any more additions to many of the story lines that were ongoing. But also as much as I enjoy looking at other parts of the history I'm excited to get back to Luke, Han and Leia. The books about them (like Shadows, \truce and of course the Zahn trilogy) are still my favourite elements of the series!
