Format: Hardcover
Sanders might have had more fun writing The Loves of Harry Dancer than any other of his excellent books. Best known as a mystery/suspense writer, Sanders seems to have enjoyed indulging his creativity in unusual and singular novels like The Tomorrow File, The Marlow Chronicles and The Loves of Harry Dancer.
This fanciful love story recounts the turmoil recently-widowed Harry experiences amidst the passionate and changeable forces of good and evil. Sanders creates some of his most memorable characters and certainly some of his most fantastic action, not to mention some of his edgiest sex.
I love this book, and I enjoy giving it as a gift.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is among the worst books I have ever read. Two sides compete for the soul of Harry Dancer. There is no explanation as to why Harry is worth competing over. The characters fighting to bring Harry to one side or the other are never developed into anything that would even mildly interest a reader.
I was stuck in a waiting room for two days and read this because the alternative was three week old newspapers. I did not choose wisely.
I see used copies are available for a penny. You are at risk of overpaying. The book really sucks plain and simple.

I have read many of Mr. Sanders book recently and when I found this one in a library I decided to read it. There is a lack of information in it. Too many characters to keep track of, no background information on any of the characters, particularly the title character. after finishing reading this book, I was left with so many questions of who, what, where and why.

I like most of Lawrence Sander's stuff. This one was very offbeat, but I liked the atmosphere very much. It's the story of how Harry's soul is fought for(in a very real way) by good and by evil. I found the good vs. evil theme a little obvious, but I liked the way each side was drawn to the other. And I found Harry's grief over his wife's death real.
