__________


A murder is relived from three startling perspectives; a hunter is driven out of his mind by an invisible, malevolent entity; a man meets a terrifying end in an abandoned house; a werepanther creeps through a window in the dead of night...


Any lover of the dark and unsettling tale will be enthralled by the stories in this collection, all from the pen of the great Ambrose Bierce. Bierce is often seen as the link between Poe and Lovecraft in the American fantastical tradition, and this collection showcases his mastery of the macabre.

Om forfatteren

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) was an American writer, poet, journalist and satirist. Born in a log cabin in the Appalachian mountains, Bierce fought on the Union side during the Civil War before settling in San Francisco and beginning to write. In 1913 he travelled to Mexico to observe the Mexican Revolution, where he disappeared, never to be seen again.

Today, Bierce is regarded as one of the most influential writers of weird fiction in American literary history, with some of his stories, including 'An Inhabitant of Carcosa', having inspired Robert Chambers and H.P. Lovecraft and sowed the seeds of the Cthulhu Mythos.
