Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist. He wrote the short story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" and compiled a satirical lexicon, The Devil's Dictionary. His vehemence as a critic, his motto "Nothing matters", and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work, all earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce". Despite his reputation as a searing critic, Bierce was known to encourage younger writers, including poet George Sterling and fiction writer W. C. Morrow. Bierce employed a distinctive style of writing, especially in his stories. His style often embraces an abrupt beginning, dark imagery, vague references to time, limited descriptions, impossible events and the theme of war. In 1913, Bierce traveled to Mexico to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. While traveling with rebel troops, he disappeared without a trace.   This book is contained 18 works;  The Fiend's Delight  Cobwebs From an Empty Skull  Can Such Things Be?  An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge  Black Beetles in Amber  Fantastic Fables  Shapes of Clay  Present at a Hanging and Other Ghost Stories  The Devil's Dictionary  The Cynic's Word Book  The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce VOl.I  The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce VOL.II  The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce VOL.VIII  Write It Right  The Shadow On The Dial, and Other Essays  The Monk and The Hangman's Daughter  The Parenticide Club  A Cynic Looks at Life
