    " The only thing that could make this collection a more perfect union would be to put the 'tall tales' section at the beginning or middle because, there's a touch of anticlimax reading them after the ghost and war stories sections. Oh they're great, they just don't wrench you and break your heart like the other two sections do. "

    " I almost feel that I would have been better off spreading out the reading of Bierce's stories instead of hitting them all at once; it unfortunately got a little too predictable. That said, the stories are incredible. I can tell you that I would have been an ardent follower of his had I been born 150 years ago. Read The Devil's Dictionary AND his biography. "

    " I had read and loved "The Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge" and "The Damned Thing" when I was a kid. A few that I actually liked better reading this book of short stories were, "The Secret of Macarger's Gulch" for it's initial scare and humorous ending, and "The Watcher of the Dead" which also had a fun ending. Bierce's writing is straight-forward and descriptive, and one of the few from the turn of the century to have dealt with the supernatural. A fun read for me. "

    " bierce was the natural torch-carrier from poe. and that's a good thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 12/28/2013

    " I absolutely love Bierce's staccato writing style. Though his voice is entirely different, the aftertaste of these stories reminds me of Calvino, another of my favorites. "

    " Bierce got me reading, great stuff, try it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 gbcjr | 12/22/2013

    " Many classic horror and civil war short stories; however, the collection is not complete as the title suggests. "

    " chicamauga was gnarly "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 12/4/2013

    " It's hard for me not to like a cynic and Bierce is one of the best around. "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is especially great, putting the quixotic Farquhar through the gauntlet as I see it. "

    " Wonderful prose and a delightful read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 9/30/2013

    " If you like short stories a la Borges or Sherlock Holmes, check out some Ambrose Bierce. He's pretty rad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Tucker | 9/8/2013

    " If you are a fan of the Twilight Zone, as I am, you will love these stories. They really have the same feel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krooks | 5/18/2013

    " Bierce is a close second to Poe, in my opinion, for original, unique creepiness! Surprise endings that remind one of Shymalyan's movies abound. He's dark, scary, and brilliant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 2/28/2013

    " Absolutely a must read! "

    " What a great short story writer. Everything he writes is amazing. I can't put him down. In fact, I don't like to share him with anyone. He's my favorite secret author. "

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.
