The Book Is Not For Sale In Malaysia

I surfed one of my favourite bookstores on the net and searched for one of my favourite authors, Robin D. Owens. Guess what... there was a short sentence in red just below the title: The book is not for sale in Malaysia.

What the...???!!

Robin writes stories about the people in a community on another planet called Celta. Straightforward love stories which contain elements of psychic phenomena and intelligent cats. Could it be the spellcasting or the ways of recognizing their mates that scared the censors? Or is it the talking cats?

My intelligence is insulted. It seems I cannot decide for myself what may irreparably harm my thinking faculties.
