    " A strange tale that takes place during the Civil War. A man escapes death... or so he thinks. If you enjoy this tale, check out the Twilight Zone episode based on it. "

    " I fouund this story pretty excited and interesting. I liked it because it showed me a new point of view(Omnicsent.) I enjoyed this story because it was very unpredictable. "

    " I really liked the Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. The other short stories that followed it weren't quite as good or as thought provoking. I even went online and found where I could watch the old movie short I'd read about in other reviews. It was exactly like the story and just as interesting. "

    " Interesting, strange short stories with unexpected twists and turns. "Behind the wall" was very sad. "

    " Owl Creek was interesting. Some of the terms were a little old, so you had to pay attention as not to get confused. Other than that, the story was pretty amazing. The Twilight Zone didn't do it justice! "

    " The Civil War stories (coming from a Civil War vet) were more interesting than his attempts at horror/weird fiction. Still Bierce's influence on others like Lovecraft are important. "

    " it explained how death was being honored it's a short story but still powerful "

About the Author
Author Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Bierce (1842–ca. 1914) was an American journalist, short-story writer, and poet. Born in Ohio, he served in the Civil War and then settled in San Francisco. He wrote for Hearst’s Examiner, his wit and satire making him the literary dictator of the Pacific coast and strongly influencing many writers. He disappeared into war-torn Mexico in 1913.
