Description

Before he trailed off into the wilds of Mexico, never to be heard from again, Ambrose Bierce achieved a public persona as bitter Bierce and the devil's lexicographer. He left behind a nasty reputation and more than ninety short stories that are perfect expressions of his sardonic genius. This volume of selected stories represent an unprecedented accomplishment in American literature. In their iconoclasm and needle-sharp irony, their formal and thematic ingenuity and element of surprise, they differ markedly from the fiction admired in Bierce's time.
