ENJOY LONG WALKS ON THE SILICON DIOXIDE…
Now there’s a certain subset of geeks who camp and hike and bike and do all manner of outdoors-related stuff. That’s just not us. So when we head out to the beach or the pool for a day spent basking in the glow of our favorite fusion reactor, we’re generally outside our comfort zone.
In that case, we like to bring our comfort zone with us in the form of a good book and these board shorts. They’re printed with water, sand, and the compressed two-dimensional form of water and silica molecules, like a gentle reminder that science is all around us.
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
