(Apologies for the multiple posts, but each is on a slightly different subject.)

The book itself, "Spots the Space Marine", looks to be an unusual and entertaining read. It's written as a screenplay rather than prose fiction. I was reading the reviews on Amazon of the paperback version and was intrigued.

I've just bought the ebook which is still available on Smashwords.

Can someone in the US confirm whether it's available to purchase? (In the UK I can't see a 'Buy' button for any book on amazon.com.

Just checked and seems available... button to buy is there on this link...

That's good. It seems that Amazon has seen sense.

Ah, thanks for that. I missed that elcreative's link was to the UK site not the US one. Good to know it's back in the US.

Good to see reason prevailed over financial pressure for Amazon. Or maybe GW themselves backed off on their claims?

My twitter feed (mostly SF authors) was full of folks changing screen names to something-Space Marine or Space Marine-something. Kind of funny.

I've been reading "Spots" this evening. Must say, I'm really enjoying it so far.

Poul Anderson's singular character was Ensign Flandry, Captain Flandry, and later even Sir Flandry of the Terran Space Navy and he wrote many books about Flandry's exploits to save the "rotting, corrupt -except for him) Terran (earth) empire. He was great.

On some of his endeavors, he was aided by stalwart, giant hulking "Space Marines" of other species, in armored space suits that used great crowbars to wreck the opposing nasty forces own armored space suits..

My brother in law who retired from the Navy as a Captain and I, a ground pounder, as young men, both loved those interstellar swashbuckling tales.

Of course the new "Space Marines" are far more advanced and far more silly than Poul Anderson's were. It appears that the company that owns them is also silly. Kind of like Apple and MS, trying to trademark, patent, copyright old expressions.

Amazon reinstated it after reviewing the claim by GW.

I'm sure that GW has used ships in space, and called them "spaceships". I imagine that'll be the next target.

Space, ships, and spaceships, as well as any other permutation there within.
