Random Recommendation: An Occurrence at Owl Creek

Do you love to read stories with twist endings?  Do you strive to write compelling and memorable stories?

If so, then read the story, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek" written in 1890 by Ambrose Bierce.  Simply put, it is an amazing story.  For its time, it was truly ground breaking.  Movies, such as American Beauty (1999), owe Bierce a debt of gratitude for paving the way.

You can read this masterpiece online here.

If you haven't read it before, I encourage you to do so.  Even if you have, read it again...I give it a giant Thumbs Up!
