"Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842 - 1914) was an American writer famous for his dark and cynical writings, which earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce". He is famous also for his mysterious demise. He wrote a letter to a friend, which he closed by saying, "As to me, I leave here tomorrow for an unknown destination," and then he vanished without a trace, his disappearance becoming one of the most famous in American literary history.

"The Death of Halpin Frayser" is a deeply disturbing tale, written with the sense of a terrible nightmare in which a man is horribly attacked in a wood by the undead animated corpse of his dead mother.
