5.0 out of 5 stars Universally acclaimed Ambrose Bierce..., 18 Jan 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Moonlit Road" and Other Ghost and Horror Stories (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
Universally acclaimed as one of the Great American masters of classic ghost and horror stories. Born in 1842(Ohio) worked as a printers devil on a small Indiana newspaper, and served with the 9th Indiana Volunteers in the Civil War, seeing action at Shiloh and Chickamuga among other battles.
He disappeared on a trip to Mexico in 1913, while the country was in the misdt of the revolution led by Pancho Villa. The circumstances of Bierce's death have never been known, but it is thought that he was killed during the siege of Ojinaga in January 1914. If this alone does not intrigue you enough to buy it, then be prepared to be possessed with the macabre, as Ambrose purely was. A must if you like ghost and horror stories, a compelling, suspenseful read.
