This book is your map to Tom’s Realm, otherwise known as the Maelstrom. There is no firm land here. Things move and change with the tides of Tom Stone’s mind. The compass is your only assurance that you will reach new lands of magical thought. Its four directions are Knowledge, Intelligence, Deception and Artistry. Unlike a normal journey, you will frequently be traveling in all four directions at once.
Maelstrom is a 277-page, densely illustrated hardcover book, full of the sort of magic that is seldom published-material from a full-time professional who performs both close up and on stage. Having passed through the Vortex, get ready to enter Tom’s Realm-Maelstrom!
