Description

A bone-chilling collection of uncanny tales from one of the great masters of the ghost story

‘The genuineness and artistry of his dark imitations are always unmistakable, so that his greatness is in no danger of eclipse’ H.P. LOVECRAFT

‘[‘An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge’ is] the greatest American short story… It is a flawless example of American genius’ KURT VONNEGUT

‘The most powerful American writer of horror fiction between Poe and Lovecraft’ NEW YORK TIMES

__________

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.

Contains:

The Damned Thing; The Moonlit Road; An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge; The Death of Halpin Frayser; The Suitable Surroundings; The Middle Toe of the Right Foot; Moxon’s Master; An Adventure at Brownville; The Eyes of the Panther; The Spook House; An Inhabitant of Carcosa
