Star Wars Memoir Removed from Kindle Store

A memoir about Star Wars and culture has been removed from Amazon’s Kindle Store.

UPDATE: The book has returned to the Amazon Kindle Store. AppNewser has more details:

Amazon has removed the self-published Stars Wars memoir A Long Time Ago: Growing up with and out of Star Wars from the Kindle Store citing trademark as the reason. The author, Gib Van Ert explained the removal in an email to  Boing Boing. He writes that Amazon’s “emails are vague, but they seem to being saying that I have to have Lucasfilm’s permission before selling on their store a book that talks about Star Wars.” According to the book’s Amazon listing, it is a personal memoir about growing up in the era of Star Wars.
