Deep sadness is an artist of powers that affects people in different ways. To one it comes like the stroke of an arrow, shocking all the emotions to a sharper life. To another, it comes as the blow of a crushing strike.

Children of horror, ghosts march off to phantom wars in a dense fog, a man is found murdered in a haunted forest possibly by the vengeful undead, and an accursed creature terrorizes a man alone in the darkness, as we introduce the horrific Ambrose Bierce.
Ambrose Bierce was an American short story writer, journalist, poet, and Civil War veteran. A prolific and versatile writer, Bierce was regarded as one of the most influential journalists in the United States. He was also a pioneering writer of realist fiction.
Bierce’s acclaimed horror writing, has been ranked alongside Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. We’d have to agree. Just check out a truly heart wrenching story, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”. It’s the story of a soldier being hanged having his life pass before his eyes. The story and the great Rod Serling movie haunted us for weeks after reviewing them.
Strangely, Bierce’s final days have gone on into their own literary mystery. In December 1913, Bierce traveled to Chihuahua, Mexico, to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution.
Ambrose Bierce disappeared while traveling with rebel troops. He was never seen again.
“The Boarded Window: An Incident in the Life of an Ohio Pioneer” is a short story by Ambrose Bierce. It was first published in The San Francisco Examiner on April 12, 1891. The story was later was reprinted in the collection “Tales of Soldiers and Civilians”.
The story focuses on a man in a lone cabin named Murlock and the events surrounding the death of his wife years’s prior.
This one should leave its claws in you a while!
What is the horrific story behind the death of Murlock’s wife? Will her tale from the grave fall on deaf ears?
