Ambrose Bierce on tape

Adapted and performed by Timothy Patrick Miller, an award-winning voice actor and story teller & a critically acclaimed creator and performer of one-person shows, these stories were originally published in 1909.
Enlisting in the 9th Indiana Volunteers in 1861, Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce became a topographical engineer in Hazen's Brigade. Rising to the rank of Lieutenant, he saw some of the bloodiest fighting of the Western Campaign, including Chickamauga, Shiloh, and Kennesaw Mountain, where he was severely wounded. Following the war, he moved to San Francisco and began a career as a journalist. He also wrote books and stories, often with a macabre theme. His Devil's Dictionary justified the nickname of 'Bitter Bierce', but his Civil War remembrances showed the depth of the emotional scars he carried to his grave.

Tape One contains The Mockingbird, Chickamauga, and One of the Missing
Tape Two contains An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge; One Officer, One Man; A Horseman in the Sky; and A Son of the Gods.
