The Temple of Gold: A Novel, by William Goldman.

William Goldman’s stunning debut novel about a young boy, adrift and alone, coming of age in a cruel world

Raymond Euripides Trevitt is not yet ten when he resolves to make his own way in life. When a new boy, Zock, moves in next door, he knows he has finally met his partner in life’s great adventures. As they come of age in midwestern, midcentury America, Ray and Zock become the best of friends—even though they’re opposites in many ways. Ray takes Zock hiking; Zock teaches Ray about poetry. Together, they run away to Chicago, hide out in movie theaters, and watch Gunga Din over and over.
They navigate high school together: double dating, learning about first love, getting into college. But during a summer visit home, a tragic accident leaves Ray racked with guilt and self-loathing. Broken and lost, Ray is left to find his way through life one blunder at a time, never giving up hope or relinquishing his quest for atonement.
This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

Here's today's Daily Science Fiction/Fantasy Deal, available for $1.99!

Tales from the White Hart (Arthur C. Clarke Collection: Short Stories), by Arthur C. Clarke.

In the White Hart Pub in London just north of Fleet Street, Harry Purvis holds court-a consummate tall-tale teller who always has a good story up his sleeve. He is joined by science fiction writers Samuel Youd, John Wyndham, and Clarke himself-all under pseudonyms, and all trying to outdo each other with their outlandish tales of science and invention.

Inspired by the Jorkens collections by Lord Dunsany, this collection of stories is Clarke's third-and, while they were written in locations as diverse as New York and Sydney, they all have a distinctly English flavor. Written by one of the genre's most important authors, Tales of the White Hart is sure to delight Clarke fans, lovers of science fiction, and anyone who appreciates a good tall tale.
