your local magic store and through the publisher, Leaping Lizards Magic. I highly recommend their other titles as well.

"Paul Praters "Maleficium" is not only
a beautifully produced book, it's an excellent collection of direct and entertaining routines of the bizarre genre. I really enjoyed
reading it and highly recommend it." --Bob Cassidy
"I am very impressed and am on my third reading now. Please consider
purchasing Paul's books- not just for his effects but for his thinking and tips."--John Howard
"As you would expect in a tome
about bizarre magick performance, the effects are story based and a lot of thought has gone into structuring each piece. The effect
alone, without the tale that accompanies it, is strong enough magic, but the story and the atmosphere it creates takes it into another
This book really gets you close to his creative process with routines that are accessible to an audience, stories that
hook you in and strong commercial kickers at the end of the tale. Any bizarre performer will find a lot here that is of interest to
them, itís clearly written, well-laid out and is an essential tome to add to your library."--Book Review, Mystic Menagerie #4
