GOOD SPEED AND EXCEPTIONAL HANDLING
That’s not just a broomstick, Harry, it’s a Nimbus 2000!
– Ron Weasley, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Be the envy of everyone around with the fastest writing implement around: the Nimbus 2000! This tiny version looks just like the on-screen one, but when you pull the head off this broom, it magically transforms into a pen!
But wait. There’s more! Through the power of magic (and with the magnets in the included plinth), you can make your Nimbus 2000 float in mid-air on your desk or bookshelf, wowing all your friends. You know what? This broom is just about Timmy-sized. If this sample doesn’t make it back to the warehouse, we know who to go looking for. If only we could catch him….
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
