MAY CAUSE SPONTANEOUS NAPS
This robe may actually be made from the pelt of a Snorlax. We say that because it’s so dang soft. Just touching it makes us want to curl up on the couch. And that would explain why Snorlax is always snoozing. If we were that soft, we’d be accidentally cuddling ourselves to sleep all the time, too.
Warning: buying this robe may make you significantly less productive. But that’s a chance worth taking, in our not-so-humble opinions. (Humble, not honest. We’re old-school.) One side of this reversible robe makes you look like Snorlax; the other side has a repeating Snorlax pattern on it. Both are equally snuggly and likely to cause spontaneous naps.
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
