Ambrose Bierce's "Occurence at Owl Creek" is a fascinating story about a hanging man, who imagines his escape vividly in the moments before his death. It reminded me a bit of "Bullet In the Brain", the author of which I have momentarily forgotten. It was also reminiscent of those annoying dreams I have where I dream that I get out of bed and start to get ready, leave for work/class, and then wake up finding myself still in bed, and running late. Bierce uses impressive imagery and a slightly varied point of view to make the readers identify with Farquar, despite the objective details that paint him as a bad person, such as the fact that he owns slaves.
