About Author

Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was an American short story writer, journalist, poet, and American Civil War warrior who lived from June 24, 1842, in Meigs County, Ohio, to Marcus Aurelius Bierce and Laura Sherwood Bierce. Between 1620 and 1640, his ancestors immigrated to North America as a result of the Great Puritan Migration. At age 15, he left home to work as a printer's devil for a nearby newspaper. Ambrose Bierce engaged in combat in the Battle of Shiloh during the American Civil War. He worked for General William Babcock Hazen and received a first lieutenant appointment. He had a catastrophic head injury in June 1864 while on leave from his active duty. December 25, 1871, he wed Mary Ellen "Mollie" Day, and they had three kids. His daughter Helen passed away from pneumonia, and both of his boys passed away before him. They split up in 1904. The next year, Mollie Day Bierce passed away. His most well-known tales were produced quickly between 1888 and 1891. His frequently mentioned book The Devil's Dictionary, which debuted in book form in 1906, is among his most well-known works. More than 50 novels, short tales, films, TV series, stage plays, and comic comics have fictionalized Bierce.
