Have you ever watched Star Wars and wondered about the guy who pulls the switch to fire the superlaser on the Death Star? Did it ever cross your mind that there might be a woman who finds Grand Moff Tarkin’s “foul stench” attractive? Ever stop to think about daily life on board the “that’s no moon – its a space station”? Well the most recent novel in the ever expanding universe of Star Wars novels answers those questions and more. Death Star by Michael Reeves is one of the better books of the Expanded Canon; a must for fans of Star Wars or the movie Clerks.
