Beschreibung des Verlags

This volume offers the Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce (1842–1913, Wikipedia). While Version 1.0 only had the fictional writings that were published under his own name, I have added the non-fictional texts and the pseudonomously published early books for Version 2.0. It now has everything that was contained in the 12-volume The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce (New York, 1909–1912), which was supervised by Bierce himself. The texts are arranged under the titles of previously published books and some new sections, which I have regrouped by literary genre.

There are tables of contents for the collection and all of the books, and links after each text/chapter leading to the respective tables, so navigation should be easy. Alphabetical indexes for stories, fables, poems, and essays bring you to the texts you’re looking for.
