The Bierce Mystery
One golden autumn morning 100 years ago, a few blocks from where I’m writing these words in northwest Washington, D.C., Ambrose Bierce said goodbye to his secretary, turned the key in the door to his apartment on Logan Circle, and went off to God knows where.
Read the rest of Andrew Ferguson on the "brave life and mysterious death of Ambrose Bierce."
[You may recall that Carlos Fuentes wrote a novel on Bierce's experience in Mexico. It was later made into a film.]
Bierce's noted wit is at its best in The Devil's Dictionary. Great stuff.
