An Unofficial Ambrose Bierce Bibliography

PLAGIARISM n. A Literary coincidence compounded of a discreditable priority and an honorable subsequence.

This is a listing of both editions of Bierce's own works, as well as scholarship about him. It should be useful to anyone considering any serious research on the man and his work, or even if you are just a fan. Although I've endeavored to make it as extensive as possible, it is not definitive.
