“Carey McWilliams, that muckraking California journalist whose 1929 biography of Bierce remains the most astute assessment of the man and the writer, wrote hopefully, ‘Only one thing . . . is needed to insure Bierce’s place in American and world literature: a one- or two-volume edition of the best of his writing.’ We now have that volume.”—Benjamin Schwarz, The Atlantic
