UPDATE: [American] Ambrose Bierce: Horror Stories, Tall Tales, and Journalism (7/15/08; e-journal)
The Ambrose Bierce Project (http://www.ambrosebierce.org) is a hypermedia
project and peer-reviewed e-journal hosted by Penn State University. To
prepare for the fourth issue of the journal (fall 2008), we are now seeking
new essays and literary briefs. Submissions will be reviewed by members of
the ABP advisory board, a collection of leading Bierce scholars and
Americanists. Contributions to the issue will be indexed in the MLA
NOTE: Because two of our issues have already focused on Bierce's Civil War
narratives, we are especially interested in analyses of his other writings:
journalism, horror stories, tall tales, and satirical works.
Literary briefs will offer a critical perspective on a *single* Bierce
story or work of nonfiction prose. Briefs should not exceed 2,000 words,
but should include scholarly notes. Deadline: 7/1/08.
Full essays should fall between 5,000 and 12,000 words. We welcome original
essays relating to the life and works of Ambrose Bierce, his
contemporaries, and United States history and culture of the nineteenth and
early twentieth centuries. Interdisciplinary studies are encouraged.
Please submit queries, abstracts, completed briefs, and book review
proposals to the editor, Craig A. Warren, at bierce_at_psu.edu.
