In 1913, at 71 years of age, acclaimed American journalist and author of popular "horror" fiction Ambrose Bierce set out on his final journey. It is a journey that has been shrouded in mystery ever since. What is known to history and biography is that Bierce visited the Civil War battlefields where he had fought in the Union Army. His destination was Mexico. His motivation for the Mexico journey remains unclear. Some say he was going to fight alongside Pancho Villa in the Mexican Revolution. Others say he wanted merely to report the war firsthand as he had done with his Civil War experiences. He is believed to have reached Chihuahua, Mexico, by late November or Early December of 1913, whereafter he disappeared from the face of the earth. Nusquam Res, Nusquam Esse is a fictional account of that journey as seen though the eyes of a young valet who accompanies Mr. Bierce on the journey into oblivion. It is rich in historical details regarding the various places the two men visit and biographically correct - to the extent of what is known of Ambrose Bierce's life.
