Real Witches Don't Ride Brooms – "I was born in 1975 in a commune in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury to a coven of witches," he writes. "My mother and her lesbian, feminist brood didn't cackle over large caldrons, but they did practice magic – white magic, black magic, green magic – and they worshiped a pantheon of goddesses, spirits, and energies. This lifestyle is all I knew, and I enjoyed the comradery of the coven, although I did suffer from an uneasy feeling that I should have been born a female like everyone around me."
