Okay, so maybe he wasn't the ONLY reason. His words painted pictures and brought out emotion. Some of the stories are spellbinding, while others are merely entertaining, but to a word, not a single story is disappointing. "Paladin" is a beautiful tale of race relations and human emotions. The best of the bunch is "Broken Glass," a story about a woman whose darkest sexual fantasies are invaded by a telepathic sort of rapist. When he does, he's one of the best, as in this book's centerpiece: the mind-shattering and intellectually overwhelming tale "The Region Between", which is one of the best short stories I have ever come across.
Moving, touching, and crushing at the same time, in a way only Ellison can pen. The ending is intense, and I'm still thinking Angry Candy the consequences. A female werewolf who enjoys dining out meets her match in Paris during the darkly humorous "Footsteps," while the four-page "Escapegoat" uses time travel to help send the Titanic onward towards its predestined doom. But for Harlan Ellison, death is not always the end of the story. You'll be entertained and a better thinker for it.
I guess his worst Angry Candy are merely a bit silly form the cynical perspective. Despite this absurd output, this volume actually seems to be of pretty steadily decent craftsmanship and originality.
All of the stories save one are from the 1980's, the exception being The Region Between, which appeared in a Keith Laumer anthology in 1969 and appears here in a revised format.

Angel forgot about being angry and never got angry again. Harlan Ellison Angry Candy a hodgepodge of tales surrounding the realm of death in the collection dubbed Angry Candy.
Hardcover first edition, first printing. "Laugh Track" is a creatively written story in which a man follows his deceased Aunt through the years as her laugh shows up on laugh tracks over the decades. I recently wrote,, and. Boards are clean, not bumped. The function of dream sleep.
The stories in Angry Candy all have to do with death in some form but they are full of hope, and some were also quite funny.
I've always found Harlan Ellison to be an inconsistent writer.
The twist is that the laugh track keeps her alive and he is able to connect with her, setting her off in a new direction.
I like him better than any other sci fi writer—and that includes Bradbury, Bloch, Matheson, and Leiber, all favorites of my youth.
His imaginative and riveting short stories were the perfect gateway drug for a chubby little fledgling bookworm with a short attention span.
