And yet still more genuinely entertaining than 70% of the EU.

Maybe so - I've certainly heard good things about her first book, before all the numbers nonsense kicked off, but everything I've heard about her since is that she's a) obsessed with pedalling said numbers at the expense of all else, b) prone to Mando- and Fett-wanking at the expense of all else (including the films) and c) is prone to writing utter crap to the extent that Allston and Denning were having to devote a significant chunk of their books in the LotF series to cleaning up after her.

Actually I meant her being batshit insane was more entertaining, not what she'd written.

Ah, fair enough, but I just find it irritating. Batshit craziness can be funny, but not in this case IMO.
