Ambrose Bierce

The Moonlit Road and Other Ghost and Horror Stories

This collection of short and chilling ghost stories was originally published in 1913 and is loosely organized into four categories: The Ways of Ghosts, including “An Arrest,” in which a murderer is escorted back to jail by the prison guard he murdered to escape; Soldier Folk including “A Man with Two Lives,” in which a man dead and buried returns to claim his belongings, Some Haunted Houses, including “The Other Lodgers,” in which a man checks into what he believes is a hotel only to discover it is an abandoned hospital, and Mysterious Disappearances, including “The Difficulty of Crossing a Field,” in which a man disappears in full view of witnesses while crossing a field.
