The new issue of the Ambrose Bierce Journal is now available. Fellow blogger Craig Warren – who teaches at Penn State – Erie – has done an excellent job collecting essays around the theme of Bierce and memory. Craig managed to gather an excellent line-up of historians including Bjorn Skaptason, Brooks Simpson, Ken Noe along with reprints from Earl Hess and David Blight. Finally, there is an interview with Carol Reardon. I contributed a book review of Chandra Manning’s latest study of Civil War soldiers and slavery.
