WARM FOOT CHARMS
Old castles in Scotland? They’re really quite drafty. Sure, you’ve got the ability to make a stream of warm air come out of the end of your wand, but you don’t want to sit around all day, pointing your wand at your feet, do you? Especially not when that wand could be better suited magically stirring your hot chocolate, instead. Or when you need it to fight in a wizard’s duel.
Slide a nice warming charm onto your feet with a pair of these Harry Potter Hogwarts Moccasin Slippers. The fuzzy soft insides will keep your toes toasty without the need for any incantation. The napped faux suede outside is printed with the crest of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, making them all official-like, so you can get away with wearing them to class (at least, when Umbridge isn’t running the show here). Plus, who can even see that they’re slippers under those big black wizard robes, anyway? The rubber grippy bottoms will help you keep your footing, even if you need to make a quick escape from Argus Filch.
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
