YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR PLACE NEEDS? MORE SPACE
Have you ever wanted to hug the Earth? Or sprawl under the stars? Maybe even touch a pulsar? Now that’s just silly; why would anyone want that? You’d probably just get seriously, seriously injured. Or at the very least, void your insurance policy. Honestly, it’s a little ridiculous that you’d even think that was possible, because it’s not. Unless, of course, you have this LED Space Fleece Blanket.
A ThinkGeek creation (and a ThinkGeek / GameStop exclusive), this blanket shows an astronaut in the foreground, a blue planet reflected in the helmet. And across the purple star-spangled sky, 18 stars in particular flash on and off. Since astronomical scintillation is going on, we’re going to assume you’re viewing this blanket from Earth’s atmosphere. Or, well, someplace with atmosphere. We hope they have couches there, too, cause that’s what this is perfect for.
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
