Publisher's Summary

Horror/comedy master Jeff Strand returns with a collection of 26 gleefully macabre tales! 

A cheerful snack mascot who snaps under the pressure. The nightmarish effects of the most depressing holiday song of all time. A virtual-reality environment that allows you to enact your most depraved fantasies...sort of. Giant mutant cockroaches doing battle with zombies in the Old West. An unnerving discovery in the Book of Revelations. The true secret of silent comedian Buster Keaton's success. Plus a Halloween curse, a lot of psychopaths, and much more! 

Often hilarious, frequently gruesome, and sometimes just flat-out wrong to the point where laughing at them presents a moral quandary, Candy Coated Madness is Strand at his demented best!

awesome!

What a fun book! the stories were funny, silly and gory and the narrator gave an awesome performance. If you are looking for a horror anthology that is just a fun ride, consider this one. I now consider myself a fan of Jeff Strand. (also if i ever open a subscription box that included a short story by him, I'd be utterly delighted!!)
