And what lesson can we draw from Volantene history?
If you want to conquer the world, you best have dragons.
– George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
You may not be Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, khaleesi to Drogo’s riders, and queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have your own plans for world domination. Keep them safe and sound, sheltered under the wing of a dragon in this purse.
Designed by our friends at Crowded Coop, this Game of Thrones Drogon Purse is a ThinkGeek exclusive. The flap is a dragon wing. The outside looks like dragon skin, too, only it’s faux leather – no dragons were harmed in the creation of this bag. We promise. It even comes complete with spiky tail. The lining looks like the pattern you’d find on a Valyrian steel blade. It basically roars your fierceness. This is not a bag for the faint of heart.
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
