Episode 2 - Moxon's Master, by Ambrose Bierce

Play

Moxon's Master, by Ambrose Bierce.

Ambrose Bierce is well-known in the annals of great writing, mostly for his story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," about a Civil War soldier being hung for treason. A Civil War veteran himself on the Union side, Bierce is also still known for his other war stories, and poetry. Throughout his stories there winds a thread of being a fabulist, and Moxon's Master, written in 1899, is no exception. Crossing the divide between psychological horror and science fiction, Moxon's Master explores the strange and strained relationship between man and machine, predating so many other works that delve into the very same arena.

Bierce was a ceaselessly interesting character, known for biting sarcasm and wit and his disdain for most of humanity. His writing influenced such luminaries as H.P. Lovecraft and H. L. Mencken, and while he was fluent in many writing styles, his style was not for everyone of the age. Bierce's final resting place is unknown; he disappeared without a trace while riding as an observer with Pancho Villa's army through Mexico in 1913.

“THE DAMNED THING” BY AMBROSE BIERCE (Classic Horror Fiction!) #WeirdDarkness

Please share Weird Darkness with your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime – and thanks for doing so!
IN THIS EPISODE: It’s #CreepypastaThursday and this week I have two stories to share. Evelyn Berstrand has crafted an amazing tale about a grandchild finding out something incredibly disturbing about a deceased grandparent with the story “My Grandmother Left Behind Some Really Dark Secrets”. But first up, I’m reaching back to 1893 for a classic tale of horror written by an American Civil War soldier, wit and writer, Ambrose Bierce. The story, “The Damned Thing” first appeared in the magazine “Town Topics” on December 7th in 1893… a magazine, interestingly enough, not known for horror at all, but more for art, music, and society.
