About the Author:

Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (June 24, 1842 - 1914?) was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist and satirist. Today, he is best known for his short story, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" and his satirical dictionary, The Devil's Dictionary. The sardonic view of human nature that informed his work - along with his vehemence as a critic - earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce". Despite his reputation as a searing critic, however, Bierce was known to encourage younger writers, including poet George Sterling and fiction writer W. C. Morrow. He is known for his distinctive style of writing, which his stories often share. This includes a cold open, use of dark imagery, vague references to time, limited description, war-themed pieces, and use of impossible events. In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain a firsthand perspective on that country's ongoing revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, the elderly writer disappeared without a trace.

About the Author:

Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842-1914) was born in Meigs County, Ohio. He grew up in Indiana and fought for the Union in the Civil War. He was in the UK from 1872 to 1875, where he wrote for Fun magazine, and in 1887 joined the San Francisco Examiner. He wrote Tales of Soldiers and Civilians in 1892, and compiled the much-quoted Cynic's Word Book, now known as The Devil's Dictionary, for publication in 1906. In 1913 he went to Mexico to report on Pancho Villa's army, and disappeared.
