this wasn't my favorite Bierce story but I didn't hate it. I found his usual humor to be there. I listened to a Librivox recording and the reader had a hard accent. I plan to find another copy and re-read or listen again.
it's about a guy in a little shack. one night he receives a visitor, which is strange because of the location of the house. there is a story of why he is there and what he may or may not have done. (I think he's guilty).
