“The Damned Thing” (1894)

Creators

Ambrose Bierce (writer).

Extent

Read in 2017.

Commentary

Bierce’s defence against the accusation that he took his invisible creature from “What Was It? A Mystery” (1859) is weak. A powerful invisible predator would breed quite a bit if it were indeed natural.
