Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (born June 24, 1842; assumed to have died sometime after December 26, 1913 ) was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist. He wrote the short story " An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge " and compiled a satirical lexicon The Devil's Dictionary. His vehemence as a critic, his motto "Nothing matters", and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work, all earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce".
