Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was a strange and a wise American. Even his life was unusual: he resigned a very successful Army career to become a journalist, an editor and a writer. He was a public atheist in the XIXth century, when it was a bad fortune; he had published sarcastic «Devils Dictionary» just before the time when sarcasm became popular. He divorced with his wife to join Pancho Villas revolutionary army in Mexico and finally disappeared there in about 1913 or 1914, and nobody knows where he was and what he did.
And now E-dition proposes you to study the life and thoughts of this very unusual person and writer. There is an «Ambrose G. Bierce Selected Works» e-book, which presents old textual media «read it page by page» as «study it». The e-books «electronic cover» makes it easy to go forth and back through the stories, essays and poems by Bierce. Besides, «The Devils Dictionary» has hyperlinks to stories so you always can jump to Bierces own sarcastic description of the things he wrote. There is also a bookmark feature, and even an integrated notepad, so you can feel like working with the sources of sarcasm and wisdom, instead of feeling like «read and forget». Bierces detailed biography is also an integral part of this e-book, as in Bierces case you cant fully understand the writing without understanding the writer.
