Timothy Patrick Miller’s ’96 cassette volume CIVIL WAR TALES OF AMBROSE BIERCE is now rereleased for download under a new title and greatly expanded. The tales reflect the author’s personal experiences as a Union soldier, not to mention his penchant for the fantastic and the macabre and for mordant humor. Miller has lightly edited the material for oral delivery. As narrator, he contributes a flexible, deeply resonant voice; a gift for the dramatic; a sensitivity to atmosphere; and a thorough understanding of nuance. Bierce may have been an uneven writer, but Miller is a consistently excellent performer, elevating the weaker selections and bringing out the best in the good ones, especially the classic “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” Y.R.
