Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the incredible world of Ambrose Bierce! A true master of the weird, eccentric, macabre and even grotesque horror story. The 24 tales in this collection are no exception. They are often deceptively simple, in the end requiring the listener to re-evaluate what has transpired and realizing that the pieces of the puzzle - often quite dreamlike - makes for something bigger and more sinister than just the finished work...

A less-known master of quick creeps!

I don't remember how I stumbled upon Bierce but once I did I devoured ALL of his work. AFTER reading it all in an actual book I purchased this to listen to....

The stories are of course great HOWEVER....I personally enjoyed reading them better.

The first story I ever read of his was not a well known one but one of the scariest and my favorite, The Moonlit Road.

An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge is so well written. It is the type of story I feel most short story lovers long for... It brings you into a story that is so well described but so deceptive and at the end proves all is not as it seems. It makes you FEEL it. Can't ask for more. If you like scary, creepy, war stories, ghosts, apparitions, nature and all that lurks in it.... this is for you.
