A Ghost Story: "The Damned Thing." Ambrose Bierce.

One-minute review: Inquest. Who or what killed Mr. Morgan? There are sounds that cannot be heard by humans—as in flights of birds that arise from treetops all at once. And pods of whales that dive all at once with no visible signal. And there are colors that cannot be perceived by humans. Of such is the color of the “damned thing” that killed Morgan.

Famous Ghost Stories. Compiled by Bennett A. Cerf. New York: The Modern Library. 1944.
