Ambrose Bierce: Author of the Day

(stealing this “something a day” format directly from delaney – and figuring i might as well be educational about it. i’ll do an Author of the Day, including a photo, quote, and trivia tidbit. i be learnin’)

“All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher.”

from Meigs County, Ohio!!!  he drew topographical maps during the Civil War as an enlisted man, was also shot in the head.

in 1913, he disappeared…..

hope this was enough to pique interest – now dig for yourselves, please…..
