TIME AND RELATIVE DIMENSION IN SLEEP
For any of Doctor Who’s companions, their adventures with the whimsical traveller can seem just like a bunch of wild dreams. Crazy aliens, strange planets, and experiencing all kinds of alternate histories and futures. If it were you, wouldn’t you expect to wake up and find out none of it had really happened?
If you want to partake in some of those same crazy adventures (albeit actually in your dreams), there’s no reason you shouldn’t also travel in style. Hop on into this Doctor Who TARDIS Hooded Lounger and take a nap to a whole new time and place!
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
