Ambrose Bierce Project is an online forum and resource
for the study of Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842-1914?), the American
soldier, topographer, journalist, and writer.
Bierce is an important, if underappreciated, presence in American literary history.
He is today celebrated especially for his considerable powers as a satirist,
and for his mastery of the short story genre. His incomparable writing has led
many scholars to rate Bierce among America's finest prose talents.
The ABP strives to bring together Bierce scholars
and students from around the globe. Here participants and contributors will exchange
ideas, weigh literary analyses, and review new works of scholarship.
Reflecting the dynamic career of Bierce, the project aims to be interdisciplinary
in nature; it will take full advantage of the pictorial and textual advantages
of an online environment in order to explore the constellation of historical,
cultural, and literary phenomena touching Bierce’s life and career.
The ABP also promotes -- and provides a home for -- original writing
on the subjects of Bierce, his contemporaries, and American culture of the
and early twentieth centuries. ABP referees review
all submissions, furthering the project’s commitment to publishing peer-reviewed
The Advisory Board is comprised of leading Bierce scholars and historians whose
contributions and guidance make the ABP possible. To learn more about our advisors
and their work, please visit the Advisory Board page.
