While you're in the www.Amazon.com neighborhood, feel free to check out RED ORCHID, Alexander's stab at self-publishing a novel.

And if your taste runs to really, really-bad poetry, COLOR, Alexander's sole attempt at it is also there; plenty of electronic copies remain.

DRAGON LADY, Alexander's much- acclaimed Vietnam novel, takes place in 1965 Saigon and in the near future after the protagonist's death. It's at once satirical, humorous, romantic, literary and science-fictional.

It's available at www.Amazon.com in dead-tree and e-book form.
