Summary

 I am the author of a collections of short stories called solospaceman. I wrote them in a format that I named the Alpha and Omega. It allows the title to be the first element in the story as well as its last element. Why? There are a multitude of reasons, which help to explain “why” that phenomena happens. Consider, for example, in my opinion, writing in a first and last format is Mnemonic or a device which assists the reader in remembering what he has read. Whereas most of the time a Mnemonic is a word, repetition of a word, or a list of words, which help us to remember things such as plans, important information, or specific events, in solospaceman stories Mnemonic endings bring us back to the very beginning of a story so that we can self-reflect on it as well as remember it.  
     In fact, when the reader consciously relies on his own individual mental reasoning to interpret a story that I have written (self-reflects), it allows him to examine what he finds relevant in the story. Thus, he makes connections to the story that are based on his real life experiences with what I have written. That in turn generates proficient readers who are capable of re-organizing my stories into meaningful reading experiences.  
     Similarly,  the Alpha and Omega learning style allows my reader to self-reflect on the solospaceman story that she read by asking her to interpret it in her own way. That is, immediately after the majority of my stories, readers are asked to... Please place your drawing and/or your interpretation of this story here! The key word in that polite request is interpretation. It means to clarify, explain, or translate something ambiguous... in terms of its dictionary definition.  
     However, in solospaceman stories, when the reader is asked to interpret a solospaceman story by following my instructions to... Please place your drawing and/or your interpretation of this story here!…  her interpretation provides her with another way to self-reflect in that it gives her a prompt to reexaime the particular story I wrote that she read. That allows her not only to become a better reader, but also a better writer if she chose to write a response to one of my stories.  So, for the above reasons, I invite you to read one of my short stories then self-reflect on it by writing a response to it or choosing a response to it that you feel most comfortable in creating.

    Distantly upon the horizon, bejewelled light shone like stars; tantalising, inviting.
     
    Then the palace-in-glass was gone, fading away into the velvet night like a snuffed lamp.
     
    Between the sands and the starlight, ancient powers rise, and the oldest of tales becomes new. 
     
    An old sorcerer travels the starlight bazaars: cursed and magic-blighted, he has glass where his heart should be.
     
    A half-jinni enchantress seeks her missing son: daughter of a fallen king, hers is a great and daunting power.
     
    A trio of camels walks the sands: loyal sisters in service, there is more to their past than meets the eye.  
     
    What unites these tales (and many more) is a marvel of sorcery and beauty: a great palace of ensorcelled glass, glimpsed only under the stars, and vanishing with the dawn...
     
    The third Wonder Tale from Charlotte E. English combines the magic and colour of ancient stories with her trademark wit and whimsy. A fresh journey into the strange lands of fairytales.

    That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course! 
    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that? 
    Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

The young men are immediately picked up by a violent and omnipotent militia—the Collection—and it's Mia's turn to rescue them. 
    With time running out, her ex-fiancé's henchman on her trail, and a dangerous tide shifting back in America, Mia will do whatever she has to. Even if that means risking everything and putting herself back on an auction block. The price of freedom is never too high . . . but what if the cost is her life?
