FOR LOUNGING ON THE OBSERVATION DECK
Spacesuits aren’t known for their comfort. After all, they’re basically life-support capsules that encase the astronaut, keeping them alive in the harsh vacuum of space, where they’re being bombarded with debris and radiation. But inside the protection of the International Space Station, crewmembers get slightly more comfortable clothing. However, because of the limited resources on the ISS (both water and storage space) they only get to change clothes once every ten days.
We do not suggest you try that with this Astronaut Hooded Lounger. It looks like an EVA suit, but it’s actually soft, comfy fleece. It has shiny silver details and ribbed cuffs at the wrists and ankles that’ll keep the cold from seeping in. Just maybe not to the extreme of the coldness of space. Also, throw this in the laundry more than once every ten days so you don’t scare your crewmates off.
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
