Bierce, Ambrose: Collected Works | v.2.0 | Update 17 Nov 2013

This volume offers the Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce (1842–1913, wikipedia). While Version 1.0 only had the fictional writings that were published under his own name, I have added the non-fictional texts and the pseudonomously published early books for Version 2.0. It now has everything that was contained in the 12-volume The Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce (New York, 1909–1912), which was supervised by Bierce himself. The texts are arranged under the titles of previously published books and some new sections, which I have regrouped by literary genre.

So, this is what you’ll find in this volume:

The Devil’s Dictionary (1906)

Epigrams

Early Writings
The Fiend’s Delight (1873)
Cobwebs from an Empty Skull (1874)
The Dance of Death (1877)


Stories
Ashes of the Beacon
The Land beyond the Blow
For the Ahkoond
In the Midst of Life—Tales of Soldiers and Civilians (1898)
Can Such Things Be? (1893)
The Ways of Ghosts
Soldier-Folk
Some Haunted Houses
“Mysterious Disappearances”
The Monk and the Hangman’s Daughter (1892)
Negligible Tales
The Parenticide Club
The Fourth Estate
The Ocean Wave
Kings of Beasts
Miscellaneous


Fables
Fantastic Fables
Fables from “Fun”
Æsopus Emendatus
Old Saws with New Teeth
Fables in Rhyme


Plays
The Mummery
Two Administrations


Poems
Shapes of Clay
Some Ante-Mortem Epitaphs
The Scrap Heap
Black Beetles in Amber
On Stone


Essays, Articles & Reviews
Bits of Autobiography
“On with the Dance!” A Review
Tangential Views
The Opinionator
The Reviewer
The Controversialist
The Timorous Reporter
The March Hare
The Shadow on the Dial and Other Essays (1909)
Write It Right


I started with the Gutenberg texts and resorted them according to “The Collected Works”. I proofread and added about 90 missing poems and some fables, checked and corrected the formatting, assigned classes to poems, quotes, subtitles, section breaks, etc. Quotes are curly, footnotes are active, fonts are embedded, and italics have been restored when they were missing.

There are tables of contents for the collection and all of the books, and links after each text/chapter leading to the respective tables, so navigation should be easy. Alphabetical indexes for stories, fables, poems, and essays bring you to the texts you’re looking for.

All the best,
pynch.

Nothing planned yet for the near future, apart from the Carroll.

There is a project, though, scheduled for January 1, 2013, but that will remain secret until then.

Best,
pynch.

I have added the non-fictional writings and pseudonomously published early books to the collection, renamed it accordingly, and replaced the cover.
