This short story collection by Ambrose Bierce has all of the following stories: My Favorite Murder, Oil of Dog, An Imperfect Conflagration, The Hypnotist Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist. He wrote the short story ”An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” and compiled a satirical lexicon, The Devil’s Dictionary. His vehemence as a critic, his motto ”Nothing matters”, and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work, all earned him the nickname ”Bitter Bierce”. Bierce was considered a master of pure English by his contemporaries, and virtually everything that came from his pen was notable for its judicious wording and economy of style. He wrote in a variety of literary genres. His short stories are held among the best of the 19th century, providing a popular following based on his roots. He wrote realistically of the terrible things he had seen in the war in such stories as ”An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, ”The Boarded Window”, ”Killed at Resaca”, and ”Chickamauga”. In addition to his ghost and war stories, he also published several volumes of poetry. His Fantastic Fables anticipated the ironic style of grotesquerie that became a more common genre in the 20th century.
