Blake grew up just south of Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he spent his spare time exploring the desert in his World War Two surplus jeep. Sometimes he listened to old timers’ tales of Geronimo, Pancho Villa, and Billy the Kid. Today he weaves his love and respect for the desert along with bits of what he’s heard and seen into his stories. A retired Professional Engineer in the State of California with Masters Degrees in Energy Conversion and Urban Planning as well as experience as a college math instructor, Blake's interests range from science and history to aliens and the Kaballah. An avid reader, Heitzman is influenced by his favorite writers: Stephen King, H.G. Wells, Bradbury, Vonnegut, Michael Crichton and Tony Hillerman. He is currently writing The Shaman Gene series, the story of Earth’s rise to join galactic society. "The Robot's Daughter", is the second in the series, although it has been designed to be read as a stand alone novel as well. Two more novels: Seekers of the Scroll and The Forceps of Sharon are in draft. You can read more and comment at Blake’s website: www.shamangene.com/BLOG Blake is member of Tri Valley Writers Club.

There has always been a bridge near Weißenbach in the Black Forest. At first it was just a fallen log, a convenience for the Bronze Age natives to cross the Murg River. Later, when settlements developed nearby, a wooden structure was built. When the Romans came, they converted it to stone. Now days, it’s paved and cars pass over it, but since the beginning, locals have known not to wander upon it under a new moon. This, the bartender’s tale, is the first of several stories about careless or desperate souls who did.
The Bartender is the first story in a developing collection of fantasy stories about a bridge that sometimes changes the lives of those who venture upon it during a new moon night. Others never know what became of them. However, the diligent may find clues in the archives and folklore of the village.

Nice very short tale. No surprises. Ending was very predictable.
