The 18th Book in the series is, apparently, Maskerade, which probably means nothing!

No - it means it was the eighteenth DW item they produced.

Ahh.

Mind, it did give me an excuse to peruse the webby world for Maskerade:

Nanny Ogg usually went to bed early. After all, she was an old lady. Sometimes she went to bed as early as 6 a.m.

I tried finding the reference over the weekend with no luck. Guess it will remain a mystery.

The only thing that shows up when you Google "Maleficos Inheritance Accelerator" is references to the Clarecraft figure. This makes me more convinced that it's not actually mentioned in any of the books. But I could be wrong. Sorry we couldn't be more helpful. :)

Like the other two potion bottles (Hilda Goatfinder's Diabolica for Men and Granny Weatherwax's Invigoratore and Passion Philtre) this is a Clarecraft specific item and doesn't reference any of the books other than it could easily be believed that it would exist on Discworld
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

A quick google tells me it's in Mort - 'Granny Weatherwax's Ramrub Invigoratore and Passion's Philtre, Onne Spoonful Onlie before bed and that Smalle'.

I'm not sure if this is relevant but I was wondering if there was a parody to one of the Discworld books. I mean the parodt to Lord of the Rings is Bored of the Rings (I just read it :D )...

Good isn't it. :lol: there are others The Sellamillion (Simarillion) and The Soddit (Hobbit) by A.R.R.R. Roberts, but none that I know about Discworld ones.

I think it would be difficult to parody a DW book as they tend to be parodies in themselves.
