21 Ayers, E. C. Eye of the Gator. [A Tony Lowell Mystery].
New York: St. Martin's Press, (1995). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 294 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New), mylar protected dust jacket. E. C. Ayers's first mystery, Hour of the Manatee, won the PWA/St. Martin's Press Best First Private Eye Novel Contest. Published to great acclaim, it introduced laid-back photographer/PI Tony Lowell and his friend and occaasional adversary, by-the-book police detective Lena Bedrosian. In Ayers's sophomore effort, serious short-staffing prompts Bedrosian to enlist Lowell's help on a murder case. Lowell doesn't hesitate to join the fray, for the victim was the nephew of Ernie Larson, one of Lowell's oldest friends. A recent college graduate and environmental activist working for the government, Timothy Cross was found in an alligator pond with a bullet in his head. As Lowell begins investigating, his array of suspects includes a baseball fanatic, a single mother, and her dangerously violent boyfriend. Soon he finds himself pitted against powerful industry types, as well as black advocacy groups concerned about jobs and backwoods racists who resent meddlers. The stakes are raised even further, however, when he discovers that the very safety of Florida's diminishing water supply is at stake. Lowell is determined to find the killer, but he's got to save his own skin while he's at it.

22 Ayers, E. C. Lair of the Lizard.
New York: St. Martin's Press, (1998). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 248 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: Hour of the Manatee won the St. Martin's Press/Private Eye WRiters of America award, and his subsequent P.I. novels, all with environmental undertone, have garnered nothing but high marks from readers. In the fourth outing for Ayers's Florida P.I., Tony Lowell, the detective travels west to answer an urgent plea from his daughter, Ariel. A good friend of Ariel's, a Hispanic woman from Santa Fe, has disappeared and all indications point to foul play. Tony reluctantly agrees to go to Santa Fe to track down the missing woman. Assisted by his old acquaintance P.I., Joshua Croft and, at Ariel's insistence, a New Age mystic, Lowell soon finds himself in over his head in a situation involving deeply divided cultures, traditions, and a general western mistrust of outsiders...

24 Ayers, Wayne; Ayers, Nancy; Ockunzzi, Jan; and the Indian Rocks historical Society. Images of America: Indian Rocks Beach.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2010). 
Octavo, paperbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine (As New). From lower cover: According to legend, Indian Rocks got its name when Tocobaga Indians brought their ailing chief from inland Florida to drink from the area's sulfer springs, prized for their medicinal qualities. Their leader miraculously recovered, as the story goes, and the trib returned each year to the place where large rocks surrounded the healing spring. The natural beauty of the barrier island that became Indian Rocks Beach was what attracted Harvey hendrick to establish his homestead here in the mid-1890s. Year's later, he recalled, “I liked the place, I thought it was the most beautiful place on God's green footstool, and I think so yet.” The charm and character of this little seaside community is evident in these historic photographs, from the days when the old swing bridge was the center of activity, to the booming post-World War II era when tourists and residents proclaimed Indian Rocks Beach as their special place...

Quarto, paperbound (stiff, textured tan wrappers), [viii]+ 81 pp. With a few related notes, articles, photos. laid-in. From Preface: This is the story of my maternam grandpaernts, Dr. John Ward Hill and Sarah Mutelle Whitmire Hill. It is a true account of their move from their native state of South Carolina to the wilderness of Florida in 1884 in a covered wagon. It is a portrayal of the hardships endured and the pleasures enjoyed in a settling in a strange, new land. This is a story of memories, the memories of their eight children...I am reporting it as they told it to me over many years. Some the the experiences seemed insignificant but had made such deep impressions upon them that they often began with the same nostalgic, sometimes unimportant, memories. These sons and daughters too great pride in being pioneers; they cheerfully related their adversities. They bragged about Pa - his courage and honor; they boasted about Ma - her endurance and her determination...This is also the story of my own memories. I was priviledged to be the first grandchild and I spent a great deal of time with my grandparents...I have at different times retraced their route to Florida and have marveled at their boldness in starting on a five hundred mile journey to an unknown land with eight children, two mules, a nine year old horse, a colt and two dogs...I was able to supplement these memories with many family letters which Grandma had saved, with Mama's genealogies and scrapbooks and with the reminiscences of Cousin Jesse Whitmire, the ninety-five year old patriarch of our Whitmore family...
