It’s probably not surprising—based on his prodigious appetite for the less-healthy things in life—that Charles Bukowski didn’t live to see his 92nd birthday. But were the “laureate of American lowlife” still alive today, he would have celebrated his 92nd year last week. To celebrate, many of his best-loved books, including Ham on Rye, are available for just $1.99 each now.
If you prefer chronicles of extra-terrestrial lives over lowlives, Tor books has a deal you won't want to miss. Get dozens of short stories from popular science fiction authors like Harry Turtledove and Elizabeth Bear, for just $0.99 each here.
Looking for a break from the constant 2012 Election news cycle? Taft 2012 by Jason Heller is now available for just $3.99. A most extraordinary satire, Taft 2012 follows the strange re-emergence of William Howard Taft: a man who never even wanted the White House in the first place, yet finds himself hurtling toward it once more—this time, through the media-fueled madness of 21st-century America.
Also available for $3.99 for a limited time is the stirring Vietnam novel The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli. The New York Times said, "Ms. Soli has done prodigious research about the Vietnam War, particularly about the role of female war photographers, and so is able to imbue an otherwise deeply romantic book with a strong sense of history." This is an excellent price for a moving debut novel.
