My grandfather recommended his short stories many years ago and they stayed in my mind for many years and i finally managed to pick up a copy via Amazon. His writing has a way-a style and is captivating, clever and original. Like all good works, they don't age with time.I would highly recommend his work.
Bierce himself was an interesting man-a journalist by trade who managed to obtain recognition latterly for his work and ended up 'disappearing' in New Mexico, I believe. A strange ending to a man who engineered many strange endings in his numerous short stories.
