Something fairly unusual happened to me in a well-known British book store yesterday – I was looking for a fairly obscure translation of a Japanese novel and upon enquiring as to its availability I was told that I could not buy/order it from them because it had been banned from import into the EU!!! It was then recommend to me that I buy it off the Internet. On further investigation it turns out that it is not officially banned per-say but the publishers have just been refused a license to distribute it in the EU/US, the grounds for which were not noted. My guess is that this is simply another case of senseless censorship by western influences who are too scared and PC to allow the widespread distribution of anything which challenges their inherently flawed way of life, or perhaps I’m just paranoid!
