AMBROSE BIERCE - The City of the Goneaway - and 67 other stories of the supernatural and the weird. Before he trailed off into the wilds of Mexico, never to be heard from again, Ambrose Bierce achieved a public persona as ""bitter Bierce"" and ""the devil's lexicographer."" He left behind a nasty reputation and more than ninety short stories that are perfect expressions of his sardonic genius. The stories in this volume represent an unprecedented accomplishment in American literature. In their iconoclasm and needle-sharp irony, their formal and thematic ingenuity and element of surprise, they differ markedly from the fiction admired in Bierce's time.
