“THE DAMNED THING” BY AMBROSE BIERCE (Classic Horror Fiction!) #WeirdDarkness
Please share Weird Darkness with your friends, family, and co-workers who love the paranormal, horror stories, or true crime – and thanks for doing so!
IN THIS EPISODE: It’s #CreepypastaThursday and this week I have two stories to share. Evelyn Berstrand has crafted an amazing tale about a grandchild finding out something incredibly disturbing about a deceased grandparent with the story “My Grandmother Left Behind Some Really Dark Secrets”. But first up, I’m reaching back to 1893 for a classic tale of horror written by an American Civil War soldier, wit and writer, Ambrose Bierce. The story, “The Damned Thing” first appeared in the magazine “Town Topics” on December 7th in 1893… a magazine, interestingly enough, not known for horror at all, but more for art, music, and society.
