Waking Ambrose

Where would I be without Ambrose Bierce? He's one of my major influences. Do yourself a favor: pick up a book that includes his complete stories and poems. Then do yourself a favor and pick up a collection of his journalistic article. Bierce is generally only rememered for "An Ocurrence At Owl Creek Bridge," but he wrote many, many more things that are equally good or even better.
We have asked where I would be without Ambrose Bierce, but now we must ask the question, where would Ambrose Bierce be without Doug Pascover? Doug keeps Bierce's memory alive, and also features his own creativity on his unmatchable blog, Waking Ambrose. So wake yourself to the glory of Ambrose Bierce and Doug Pascover and check it out! Fans of classic curmudgeondom will not be disappointed.
