Glen David Gold (born 1964) is known as the author of Carter Beats the Devil, a fictionalized biography of Charles Joseph Carter (1874–1936), an American illusionist performing from c. 1900 to 1936, and Sunnyside. He writes in a narrative style, and the book was hailed as a very respectable venture into historical fiction. Gold is married to Alice Sebold, the author of The Lovely Bones and Lucky. The couple live in San Francisco, California. His second novel, Sunnyside, was published in 2009. His short stories, including The Tears of Squonk, have appeared in a number of issues of McSweeney's.
Gold wrote a single episode of the cartoon show Hey Arnold, in which title character Arnold stages an amateur magic show and "disappears" his friend Helga, who escapes during the trick, causing Arnold and the others to think she really has disappeared. The episode aired in 1997.
Gold has also ventured into comic books, writing a short story featuring Will Eisner's classic creation The Spirit. The story, entitled 'One Hundred!', features artwork by Eduardo Risso and appeared in DC's The Spirit #13.
