Children of Horror,
Civil War ghosts stalk silently through moonlit forests. A horrific creature attacks a man’s dead wife in the dark. And a soldier literally has his life pass before his eyes as he is hanged. These are just a few of the horrific stories by Ambrose Bierce.
Ambrose Bierce was an American short story writer, journalist, poet, and Civil War veteran. He is the author of the comedic “The Devil’s Dictionary” which was named as one of “The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature” by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. Bierce’s most horrific and anthologized work, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, has been described as “one of the most famous and frequently anthologized stories in American literature”.
His best short story collection by far though is Bierce’s “Tales of Soldiers and Civilians”. This horrific work was cited by the Grolier Club as one of the 100 most influential American books printed before 1900.
Bierce was regarded as one of the most influential journalists in the United States. He was a pioneer in realist fiction influencing such authors as Richard Matheson, Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft. And, just as Poe, Ambrose Bierce was considered an influential and feared literary critic.
Ambrose Bierce’s greatest story was his own. In December 1913, Bierce traveled to Chihuahua, Mexico, to gain first-hand experience of the Mexican Revolution. While traveling with rebel troops he disappeared. He was never seen again.
“The Moonlit Road” is a gothic horror short story written by Ambrose Bierce. It was first published for the 1907 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Our story focuses on the tragic tale of murdered Julia Hetman. The tale is told from the perspective of her son—Joel Hetman Jr, a man who may be her husband, and the ghost of Julia herself, through a medium.
What story can Julia Hetman tale from beyond the grave? Will Julia’s killer ever be caught so her spirit can finally be at peace?
