Ambrose Bierce was an American author and journalist who lived in the period 1842 – 1914. He is best known for his horror short stories, but he was also considered to be one of the pioneering writers of realist fiction. Ambrose Bierce was often called ”Bitter Bierce” because of his cynicism and sardonic view of human nature, a point of view which transpires mainly in ”The Devil’s Dictionary”, a work which was named as one of ”The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature”. Other popular works by Bierce are ”An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” and ”Tales of Soldiers and Civilians”. Ambrose Bierce’s interesting life ended as if it had been plotted by himself. The last that is known of him is a letter he wrote to a friend, which said ”I leave here tomorrow for an unknown destination”, and he was never seen again.
