About Ambrose Bierce


AMBROSE BIERCE (1842-1913) American satirist, critic, short story writer, editor and journalist. He is perhaps most famous for his serialized mock lexicon, THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY in which, over the years, he scathed American culture and accepted wisdom by pointing out alternate, more practical definitions for common words.
