Best of the Book Corner: ‘Magickal Sex: A Witches’ Guide to Beds, Knobs and Broomsticks’ by Fiona Horne
(Original recording made on Halloween in 2002.)
Fiona Horne is an Australian writer, musician and witch. It’s true, she practices witchcraft and has written several books about it. In fact, since making her only appearance on the show 20 years ago, she’s branched out into a number of other areas. Its current Wikipedia list provides some details:
“Fiona Horne (born 1966 in Sydney) was the lead singer of 1990s Australian electro-rock band Def FX before going on to write several bestselling books on modern witchcraft. She is a popular radio personality and of television, appearing on many She is now a commercial pilot, aid worker, world record holder skydiver, professional fire dancer, yoga instructor and freediver.
We’re to assume she had something to do with the writing of that particular entry? We had a nice conversation about his book that day. She was on the phone from Los Angeles and it was Halloween. Oh, and his phone was losing power. It was a live interview and at one point we lost it for five minutes. We were able to reestablish the connection to continue the interview. That’s one thing I don’t miss in live interviews, when technical issues arise there’s not much you can do about it. After digitizing this audio file, we edited this part. It sounds much better now!
