TO BOLDLY GLOW
Have you been looking for just the thing to spruce up your game room? Is your desk lacking a certain sense of adventure? Your problems are solved. Meet the Star Trek Enterprise Table Lamp.
The U.S.S. Enterprise hangs as the lamp pull from a starfield drum lampshade on this Star Trek lamp. The supportive base is a weighty matte black rendering of the the original Star Trek’s command insignia. This piece makes a statement about executive decisions and diplomacy that all your visitors will be sure to notice. And if they don’t, just give a little tug on the Enterprise to “enlighten” them.
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
