Horrorgeschichten – Ambrose Bierce

Obwohl ich mich im Grusel- und Horrorbereich sehr zu Hause fühle, ist dies mein erstes Buch mit Kurzgeschichten von Ambrose Bierce. Mit der Sammlung “Horrorgeschichten” ist dem Insel Taschenbuchverlag eine schöne kleine Sammlung gruseliger, fieser und nachdenklich stimmender Kurzgeschichten gelungen, die mich als Erstleser des Autors derart begeistern konnten, dass ich definitiv nach weiteren Bücher mit seine Namen Ausschau halten werde.

Obwohl die Geschichten allesamt über 100 Jahre alt sind, haben sie doch häufig an Aktualität nichts verloren und könnten durchaus in der heutigen Zeit entstanden sein. Ambrose Bierce versteht es geschickt ein unschönes Auge auf menschliche Eigenarten zu werfen und deren Abgründe sichtbar zu machen. Zudem schafft er es durch seinen Schreibstil den Leser gebannt folgen zu lassen und ihn auch teilweise zu überraschen.

Ich habe alle Geschichten aus dieser Sammlung gemocht, besonders gefallen haben mir jedoch “Die Brücke über den Eulenfluß”, “Ein Grab ohne Boden” und “Hundeöl”. Erstere Geschichte beeindruckte mich sehr durch ihre intelligente Darstellungsweise und den Drehmoment zum Ende hin. Die beiden anderen Storys sind sehr fies, makaber und ganz nach meinem Geschmack. Gerade “Ein Grab ohne Boden” trieft nur so vor schwarzem Humor.

Für jeden Leser, der sich an einer schönen Sprache und gruseligen, intelligenten und teilweise sehr makabren Kurzgeschichten erfreuen kann, ist dieses Buch definitiv eine Leseempfehlung!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
