Reading Bitter Bierce: An Intermission

My next posting on Bitter Bierce will talk about his influence, actually limited to a few tales, on H. P. Lovecraft.

But I don’t have time to write that post today so let me give you some background via a new discovery of mine, Terence E. Hanley’s Tellers of Weird Tales website.

Part 4 of his series on Bierce gives you most of the background I was going to give — and more. And he has pictures.

In a future posting, I will cover the specific plots of the Bierce stories he mentions and one other possible literary technique that came to from Bierce via Robert W. Chambers.
