INTEGRATE SOME CIRCUITS INTO YOUR LIFE
You don’t have to know how to make a circuit board to know how to use them. Heck, if you’re reading this on your computer, phone, or tablet right now, you’re using a few of them right now (and we thank you for it). This is a digital age we’re living in, and there is no time like the current to salute the things that make your gadgets go.
Enter the Circuitry Backpack for technophiles who care about looking smart and their processing capacity. The fabric is printed with a bright green repeated circuit board design that glows in the dark. It has a mesh zipped pocket inside and a padded laptop / tablet sleeve. It’s basically your standard backpack you can’t get at a standard store.
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
