Angry Candy is a 1988 collection of short stories by Harlan Ellison that is loosely organized around the theme of death. The title comes the last line of the poem "the Cambridge ladies who live in furnished souls" by E. E. Cummings, "...the/ moon rattles like a fragment of angry candy."

The collection contains the short story "Eidolons" which won the 1989 Locus poll award for best short story. It also contains the novelette "Paladin of the Lost Hour", which won a Hugo award for best novelette and was later converted by Ellison into an episode of the television series The New Twilight Zone.
