FOR KEEPING YOUR CASH SAFE WHEN IT’S NOT AT GRINGOTTS
Don’t stress out about what House you get put into at Hogwarts. Kids get pretty worked up over the whole thing, but it’s really not such a big deal. It just determines who you’ll live with for the next seven years, who you’ll hang out with and befriend, and pretty much makes a judgement call about what type of witch or wizard you’ll grow up to be. So don’t freak out! Just put the weird talking hat on.
Once you’ve been sorted, declare your House allegiance with one of these shiny clutches that are a mini version of your house’s uniform from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Choose Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. They have enough room for all your necessaries, plus they make a sweet way to carry around your eReader or a small, less-bitey reproduction of the Monster Book of Monsters.
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
