Product Description

Questing after Panco Villa's revolutionary forces, Ambrose Bierce rode into Mexico in 1913 and completely vanished from the face of the earth. Though his ultimate fate remains a mystery to this day, Bierce's contribution to American Letters rests firmly on the basis of his incomparable Devil's Dictionary and a remarkable body of short fiction. This new collection gathers some three dozen of Bierce's finest stories, including the celebrated Civil War fictions "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge" and Chickamauga"; his macabre masterpieces "The Damned Thing" and "Moxon's Master"; and his hilariously horrific "Oil of Dog" and "My Favorite Murder."

Tom Quirk, the volume's editor, provides a fascinating introductory essay, as well as indispensable explanatory notes, a glossary of military terms, and a catalog of Civil War battle sites and leaders.
