DON’T YOU LOOK RIVETING?
Whether you already have a seat aboard the airship or are flying standby after a jaunt on your jetpack, one thing is certain: the trip will take some time. And for any lengthy trip, you need little bits to keep you amused, and then something in which to keep all the aforementioned little baubles.
This Steampunk Lock and Key Faux Leather Ladies’ Backpack is just the ticket for your next dirigible adventure. It’s small enough to fit underneath the seat in front of you, but large enough to keep all your necessaries: your needlework, your grandfather’s pocketwatch safely tucked in its case, a small reticule of pin money, a vial of Doctor Quatermain’s Emergency Phlogiston, and your eReader. Just don’t jostle the bag too much while the phlogiston’s in there….
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
