FEELING A LITTLE CHEATED
Let’s be clear, pretending to congratulate a trio of brothers by granting them wishes is a pretty bold choice. It has a 66% success rate, so that may or may not be the best decision the next time Death feels cheated. But keep in mind he also had a very small sample size. Or maybe the real plan was to get people to fight over these items until the end of days. Really get that return on investment as the years went on. Who knows?
The symbol of the Deathly Hallows adorns this black, 100% cotton, shirt. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. Imported.
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
