Who is Ambrose Bierce?

Ambrose Bierce: Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist, and satirist.

His vehemence as a critic, his motto "Nothing matters", and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work, all earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce".
