CAN WE CALL YOU TWINKLE TOES?
We’d always been struck by the fact that so much time has passed since the light left the twinkling stars we see at night that many of them may no longer be in existence by the time the light reaches us. But with the new Cosmos, Neil DeGrasse Tyson changed how we look up into the sky. Every time we look up now, we imagine we’re traveling back in time. It makes the stars less bittersweet.
Stars on your feet? Totally sweet. These navy blue slide slippers feature familiar constellations and asterisms. The soles are padded. We think they’re perfect for that backyard “camping trip” to gaze at the stars. (And run back inside when you need to pee.)
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
