Strange Candy

Popular horror and fantasy author Laurell K. Hamilton, creator of the Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series, has just come out with this new collection of short stories. In the past few years, there's been controversy among Hamilton's fans; her books have become relationship-focused, when they were originally more action-oriented. Basically, instead of killing vampires, the main character dates them now. Some enjoy this change, but some wish that Hamilton would go back to her old style. These stories, written before Hamilton was a big name in publishing, are firmly in that old style, and they did not disappoint me (I've been reading the Anita Blake series since I was thirteen years old). I think fans old and new alike will enjoy the fantastic adventures here, and even fantasy lovers who have never heard of Hamilton will be captivated by these tales.
