“A HOLY TERROR” by AMBROSE BIERCE #CreepypastaThursday #WeirdDarkness

“A HOLY TERROR” by AMBROSE BIERCE #CreepypastaThursday #WeirdDarknessPlease SHARE Weird Darkness with someone who loves paranormal stories, true crime, monsters, or unsolved mysteries like you do! Recommending the show to others helps make it possible for me to keep doing the show!IN THIS EPISODE: It’s #CreepypastaThursday, and I’m back with another fictional tale of horror – this time, from classic author Ambrose Bierce. Bierce was a journalist, satirist and, of course, a prolific writer of short stories. Bierce disappeared in Mexico in 1913 and although there has been much speculation about what happened to him, it is unlikely that anyone will ever learn the truth and his fate remains a mystery to this day. Something eerily appropriate for an author known for writing things of horror and the macabre. The story, "A Holy Terror" was first published in the December 23rd, 1882 issue of TheWasp (San Francisco).SOURCES AND ESSENTIAL WEB LINKS…“A Holy Terror” by Ambrose Bierce (public domain): https://weirddarkness.tiny.us/enb8h3bz Weird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" by Ambrose Bierce

The HorrorBabble Podcast

"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is "one of the most famous and frequently anthologized stories in American literature"; and was written by American Civil War soldier, wit, and writer Ambrose Bierce. Originally published by The San Francisco Examiner on July 13, 1890, it was first collected in Bierce's 1891 book Tales of Soldiers and Civilians. The story, which is set during the Civil War, is famous for its irregular time sequence and twist ending. Bierce's abandonment of strict linear narration in favor of the internal mind of the protagonist is considered an early example of experimentation with stream of consciousness.
