The Eyes of the Panther is a collection of short stories by Ambrose Bierce, with an introduction by Martin Armstrong. It is subtitled Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, which is misleading in that this was also the title of an Ambrose Bierce collection of short stories in /5.

Many think Bierce outdid Poe in the genre. His lucid, unsentimental style has kept him popular when many of his contemporaries have been consigned to oblivion. Bierce's short stories can best be described as "potboilers".

Among the stories included in this collection are: "The Eyes of the Panther" "A Watcher by the Dead" "The Death of Halpin Frayser".

ONE DOES NOT ALWAYS MARRY WHEN INSANE. A man and a woman--nature had done the grouping--sat on a rustic seat, in the late afternoon.

The man was middle-aged, slender, swarthy, with the expression of a poet and the complexion of a pirate--a man at whom one /   The story referred to in the letter, “The Eyes of the Panther,” was the capstone of the expanded edition of his most famous collection, In the Midst of Life (which had originally been published by a small press in San Francisco as Tales of Soldiers and Civilians and which is included in Library of America’s omnibus edition of Bierce’s works.

For these were the eyes of a panther. The beast was at the open window directly opposite and not five paces away. Nothing but those terrible eyes was visible, but in the dreadful tumult of her feelings as the situation disclosed itself to her understanding she somehow knew that the animal was standing on its hinder feet, supporting itself with its paws on the window-ledge.

The short story “Eyes of the Panther” was published in in line with Bierce’s flair for short stories. The setting of the story is in the forest with a twist at the end. There is a supernatural element present throughout the story, the panther, its apparitions and the eyes.

The last 3rd of the book, is where they are trying to kill the panther. There is 6 members on the team, and its always John Corey being the brains or the action hero. I also did not like the CIA sub-plot in the book, it was very unbelievable.4/4(K).
