FOR MORE THAN A LUMP OF COAL
Of course, the Harry Potter Stocking looks amazing. It has all four Hogwarts Houses, the Hogwarts Crest, and an amazing picture of the castle printed on the front. It will be a fantastic addition to your holiday decor.
But we at ThinkGeek believe we’ve found the best *first* use for this stocking: substitute wrapping paper.
Just picture it – your aspiring Hogwarts Student opens the box, and says, “Um…a stocking? You shouldn’t have! Really…!” But with the patience of Dumbledore, you say “Look inside.”
What will be found? A Hogwarts tie? Luna’s Spectraspecs? The Platform 9 3/4 sign? Maybe a new wand? Whatever you choose, the Harry Potter Stocking is the best way to wrap all of your Hogwarts gifts this holiday season!
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
