Ambrose Bierce Gets His Due

Last weekend the NY Times Book Review ran an essay by Terrence Rafferty entitled Ambrose Bierce: The Man and His Demons.  This essay was an appreciation of the ghost stories Bierce wrote in the 19th Century, but he was also marking the release of the Library of America's new collection of his stories, Ambrose Bierce: The Devil's Dictionary, Tales, and Memoirs.

Bierce is a great writer who has been lost to many modern readers.  I ordered a copy of this new book for the BPL and will be directing a lot of readers to it.
