#OTD the wicked and bitter #AmbroseBierce was born in 1842. His #literary reputation is based primarily on his short stories about the Civil War and the #supernatural—As a #writer, he came to be called bitter for his sardonic view of humanity. Often compared to the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, these stories share an attraction to death in its more bizarre forms, featuring depictions of mental deterioration, uncanny, otherworldly manifestations, and expressions of the horror of existence in a meaningless universe.
