Today’s Twitter Talk Spooky Fan is Jon Kaneko-James, of Boo Tours. We asked him the 10 burning questions …
1. Who are you and what you are you about?
@SpookyIsles I’m a London-based occultist, historian and tour guide.
2. Sum up your life in one tweet
@SpookyIsles I know more about the use of lizard penises in Ancient Greek Love Magic than I do about what actors are famous on telly.
3, Do you believe in ghosts (and have you ever seen one)?
@SpookyIsles I believe in something. There was a spirit that used to haunt a lamp-post where I lived in Brockley. I believed in him.
4. Favourite spooky spot?
@SpookyIsles So many… if I had to choose, it would be The Spaniard’s Inn because it’s haunted AND a fantastic pub. Or Nunhead Cemetery.
5. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself that we might not know.
@SpookyIsles I actually really like the Japanese food Natto, which is so disgusting that Japanese people don’t even like it.
6. Vampires, zombies or werewolves?
@SpookyIsles Werewolves. I grew up in the 90s, so I’m all Vampire-ed out, and Zombies are passe.
7. Favourite horror film?
@SpookyIsles Easy: Doctor Terror’s House of Horrors. As a professional Tarot reader I model my whole career on the Peter Cushing’s character.
8. What would you like to be doing in 10 years?
@SpookyIsles Teaching magic and Tarot, and have a couple more books published (I brought out an Urban Fantasy novella last year.)
9. Best horror/supernatural author?
@SpookyIsles Again, easy: H P Lovecraft. Awesome vision. Also, Brits should try William Hope Hodgeson, who does not get enough press.
10. Got anything interesting coming up?
@SpookyIsles We have a new season of Boo Tours next week (check out the site!) And I’ll be starting a new Tarot course soon!
