Bob Mayer's Readers Guide: His Fiction, Non-fiction, Author's notes and more

Cool Gus and I welcome you to this Reader's Guide. We put this together so that you can peruse all my titles, see books in series orders, and have convenient links to the platforms the books are available on.

Books are listed in order in their series with a brief note from me on each book. Connections between books and series are explained, along with links where the books can be found--just click on the appropriate symbol. For the Audible symbol, you're taken to the Amazon Audible Page, but you can also find those titles directly on Audible.

Several books are free so you can get a feel: Eyes of the Hammer; West Point to Mexico; and Ides of March. For those who like audiobooks, there are free audio short stories. There are also free Time Patrol short stories.

Books that have only Amazon and Audible links are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and can be borrowed on Amazon. If you're enrolled in Amazon Prime you can also borrow those books.

Dancing Bare

Dancing Bare is the light-hearted memoir of Rigby, an impossibly innocent young man, swaps the suffocating confines of middle class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-sixties London and Europe. Revelling in the freedom conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper, rent boy, lover, teacher and dedicated traveller through Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, where travellers were uncommon and countries still retained many of the differences that made travelling so interesting. Rigby meets with a wide variety of people, life styles and customs, eventually settling in Paris where the state did not consider his sexuality to be a criminal offence. A moving and amusing story of hope and love, sex and sexuality, theatrical showmanship and artless innocence, laced with a little philosophical speculation as he wanders the world in pursuit of true love.

Audrey Hepburn/ Letters From The Grave

People have called me an optimist simply because I once said "Nothing is Impossible the word itself says I'm Possible." That is exactly what this book is - an obviously 'I'm Possible' collection of letters that I wanted to write, forgot to write, letters that got lost in the mail or never got received or perhaps were received but not read or thrown away or burnt up or torn up on purpose but, still, here they are.
