The Ambrose Bierce Project (ABP) is a forthcoming hypermedia project hosted by Penn State University. As part of its initial phase, the ABP is seeking essays and literary briefs about the Civil War fiction and nonfiction war writings of Ambrose Bierce. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by ABP affiliates and by members of the advisory board, a collection of leading Bierce scholars.

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: 5/1/05.

Full essays should fall between 5,000 and 12,000 words, and may examine any dimension of Bierce's life and work as it relates to the American Civil War. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary studies. Deadline for abstracts (with short CV): 4/15/05.

Please submit queries, completed briefs, and essay abstracts to the editor, Craig A. Warren, at
