When George Lukas wrote and directed Stars Wars (1977) starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, and James Earl Jones, he had no way of knowing that the science fiction movie would draw millions of memorabilia collectors into an fun yet fathomless black hole of merchandise collecting.
Nine-year-old Philip Heeks converted to their ranks quickly, beginning a lifelong obsession with All Things Star Wars, a mania shared with devoted disciples worldwide. Told with affection, humor, and just the vaguest hint of embarrassment, his epic saga spans five decades of fascination, furor, and fixations on Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo, Princess Leia, and the myriad mutants in their orbits.
Follow the footsteps of one man's heroic journey from childhood to middle-age, and through the trials and rigors of watching every Star Wars episode from A New Hope through The Force Awakens. Discover why hoarding vast amounts of tat can be tumultuous. You'll laugh, you'll cry . . . you'll wonder the hell why!
