It has come to the Crab's attention that even a tatty, old, quite probably stained copy of Mandingo is scandalously priced on Amazon. £38.95!
And yet the cover art is so delightful it might almost be worth spending that amount of money - it may well turn out to be a lucrative investment.
Anyway, at that price it's unlikely that we will all be getting a copy in our Christmas Stockings this year. Santa's magic, but even he has his limits.
So if anyone would care to post a book review we would all be most grateful, or failing that I suppose you could resort to the DVD for a bit of festive family viewing.
