Seeing these short stories by Laurell K. Hamilton was a treat. Some were good, some were great, and some can be skipped over. My biggest problem with the whole shebang is the cover. This book has nothing to do with women in bondage attire eating candy. Actually, this book has no sex in it at all. Which, when you think about it, is "strange" indeed when you consider the other series' that this author writes.

Overall, a pretty good read, although some of Ms. Hamilton's snarky comments in the introductions to some of the stories really didn't need to be included.

If you're a fan of Ms. Hamilton, you'll want to read STRANGE CANDY just to see how she handles short stories. If you're looking for another sex-filled Anita Blake or Meredith Gentry story, this isn't the place to find it.

And for those who feel the need to hide the cover of this book beneath a copy of Good Housekeeping, I don't blame you. The cover is there for shock value alone, nothing else. It doesn't apply to what's inside the book at all, and for that someone should be ashamed.

I actually enjoyed this book. It had a lot of stories that were origanally submitted to magazines before Hamilton became well known. However, it also had 2 Anita Blake stories. One written before the series started and one that goes with the more recent story line. Since most of this is her earlier stuff, there is more emotion than sex.

As a fan of Hamilton, I have felt that her recent editions to her series work (Anita Blake and Merry Gentry)have been good, but a little lacking. This was a fresh piece. Most of the stories are pre-published and some are set in the world of her Anita series, and even a few set in the Nightseer world, which I found fascinating. A good addition!

Very light reading, read it in a night. One new Anita Blake story, which was ok. I wouldn't pay hardback cover prices for it, but an ok read if you are a fan.
