by Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?)
Ambrose Bierce (1842 – 1914?), best known as journalist, satirist and short story writer. Cynical in outlook, economical in style; Bierce vanished while an observer with Pancho Villa’s army.
Four grotesque short stories about murder within the family, seen through the gently innocent eyes of family members … usually the murderer himself.
