This is not a scary short story, despite the fact that it was published in Can Such Things Be, and was written by Ambrose Bierce.
Instead, it is a story about racism and unfair treatment of other races, especially women, when the story was written. I'm giving it 3 stars, but this doesn't mean that it's not an excellent story. It's a good story, but not for our time.

Shelves: 4-stars, short-story
1871. This story packs a lot into it, the extreme racism against the Chinese in the 1800's, gender identity, murder, jealousy, religion, and politics. A must read for fans of Bierce. Audible edition narrated by Anthony Heald.
