    nothing of the man except for his editorial position at The Nation. I note there is one copy of the paperback Ambrose Bierce a Biography available on Amazon. (Though I'll mention that since you reminded me of the importance of local bookstores - mine being Vroman's from childhood on - I'll check with them to see if they can manage a copy.) I'd love to read it, though it's hardly California history. It will give me a glimpse at McWilliam's writing and I love Bierce.
    As always, Dave, an insightful rendering here.
