American journalist, short story writer, and poet, Ambrose Bierce is best known for his formidably vicious wit - given free rein in his famous column, The Prattler. But his stories were elegantly crafted, with a compelling blend of realistic detail, clever plot twists, and his own sardonic humor. These 8 macabre stories, read here by Mark Hammer, establish Bierce as a master of the genre. Included are An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, The Damned Thing, A Watcher by the Dead, An Inhabitant of Carcosa, The Famous Gilson Bequest, The Eyes of the Panther, The Secret of Macarger's Gulch, and The Night-Doings at 'Deadman's'.
