How stupid do you think stupid can get?

Really? That's all? You don't think it can get any stupider? Want to make a wager?

But hey, don't take my word for it. Check out these Amazon tags:
bad fanfic (5), the stupid it burns (4), copyright infringement (4), only living brain donor (3), weapons-grade stupidity (2), Lucas is so going to kill you (2), a Chernobyl-esque mistake (2), Very Very Very Illegal (2), stupid in_deep_doodoo (1), fan fiction for sale (1), copyright violation (1), stupid people doing stupid things (1), crazy like a fox (1), profiting illegally from fanfic (1), a neuron short of a synapse (1)

Just in case you're scared to click: a "professional editor" writes a Star Wars fan fiction novel and publishes it (through her own publishing concern) and then lists it for sale on Amazon, all the while insisting that she's not violating anyone's copyright. Personally, I think writing fanfic at all is grounds for institutionalization, if not forced sterilization. Of course, I doubt anyone has to worry about fanfic writers having opportunities for reproduction.

I see that her website is already down. I would guess Lucas is using The Force on her.
