MY GOD, IT’S FULL OF COFFEE
An astronaut’s helmet is the ultimate defense against the vast oxygenless vacuum of space, full of destructive radiation, the bitter freezing cold of the darkness, and also the blinding direct light of the sun. Just like a cup of coffee is our only defense against our coworkers first thing in the morning. Seriously, we need that protection, or we’ll also die in about 30 seconds. And in space, no one can hear you scream about missed TPS report deadlines.
Face the harsh realities of your morning environment with the tasty beverage of your choice, served up piping hot in this Astronaut Helmet 3D Mug. Shaped like the headgear that brave men and women have worn to protect their noggins during spacewalks, it will keep 20 ounces of liquid toasty warm for you to enjoy on this planet or, well, just on this planet… for now.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
