One line in my Ambrose Bierce article for National Review isn’t quite right:

Bierce ranks with Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft as one of America’s three finest writers of horror, with tales of ghostly hauntings, invisible monsters, and resurrection men.

This is a defensible claim, but what I meant to say is that Bierce was the finest American writer of horror between Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) and H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). The line was messed up late in the edit, no doubt because of my own carelessness.
