American short story writer and journalist, a Washington D.C. correspondent for Hearst papers in 1887-1896. After service in the Civil War with the Union army 1861-1865, he moved to San Francisco and began his writings. He became an editor for "News Letter" in 1868, leaving for London in 1872 where he wrote for the magazine, "Fun," also publishing sketches and satirical fables. Moving back to San Francisco in 1876, he worked as the editor for "Wasp" and contributed to the "Sunday Examiner." His work was comedic, cynical, sarcastic and macabre. Bierce's "Collected Works" were published from 1909-1912. In 1913, he disappeared in Mexico; presumably to join Pancho Villa's army and no trace of him has ever been found.
Bierce was married briefly to Mary Ellen Day, 1871-1872.
