Product description

Review

"Bierce''s war stories are. . .arresting, often shocking accounts of the incivilities perpetrated by and on men suddenly confronting their own mortality."--Cathy N. Davidson, author of "The Experimental Fictions of Ambrose Bierce"--Cathy N. Davidson

"He will remain one of our greatest wits, one of our most uncompromising satirists, the perfecter of two or three new genres."--Clifton Fadiman--Clifton Fadiman

"Bierce's war stories are. . .arresting, often shocking accounts of the incivilities perpetrated by and on men suddenly confronting their own mortality."--Cathy N. Davidson, author of The Experimental Fictions of Ambrose Bierce--Cathy N. Davidson

"[These] striking stories center on subject matter virtually unique in fiction: the awareness of imminent violent death. Perhaps borrowing from his experience of being gravely wounded in the Civil War, [Bierce] wrote upward of a dozen stories in which the protagonist knows he is about to die, usually by hanging or firing squad--or, in a variation, recovers consciousness after being pronounced dead."--Dennis Drabelle, Smithsonian--Dennis Drabelle "Smithsonian " --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
