Has anyone ever read anything by Ambrose Bierce, or Jack London?
What books should I start with?
The Sea Wolf is my favorite Jack London novel.
London, Call of the Wild (especially if you like dogs)
just read ;the monk and the hangman’s daughter’ - it’s written to be quite accessible - definitely want to read more from the author.
Both, yes! Call of the Wild and The Sea Wolf from London, anything at all from Bierce. Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge especially.
I second the ghost/weird stories by Bierce, his “Can Such Things Be?”
Jack London, White Fang or call of the Wild. Both good reads, mom read them to me when I was 7 and I read them in my twenties.
Bierce’s “Devil’s Dictionary” is a classic of scathing, cynical wit.
Call of the Wild aroooooooorrrrr
London: Martin Eden. Bierce: Devil’s Dictionary
White Fang by Jack London was excellent
If you’re reading Bierce, I’d recommend starting with his ghost/weird stories as that is probably more to your tastes:
For Bierce, the occurence at Owl Creek Bridge or the Devil’s Dictionary. I haven’t read London
Jack London? Anything he wrote was good.
