Jay Little, pseudonym of Clarence L. Miller

In the annals of vintage gay fiction, one author stands out as truly an enigma: Jay Little. Most people today have never heard of him. You won't find his books in stylishly designed reprints at Barnes & Noble or Borders. You can't download him on Kindle. Or read him on Google Book Search. Not yet, at least. In fact, the two books he wrote are almost completely forgotten, except by collectors And yet, Jay Little was one of the most influential gay writers of the 20th century. His two novels, Maybe-Tomorrow and Somewhere Between the Two, both self-published under a pseudonym by a vanity press, were surprising bestsellers.
