    american pulp

    I wrote some cool short stories this week. They're all in the vane of Hitchcock. I'm going to give you guys a one sentence synopsis for each one, so you know what mood I'm shooting for.

    Ghost Warfare-A WW1 sniper doesn't know who he's killing or why, but he takes pride in his work.

    Nightmare Tom- A heroic sheriff brings out the dark side of a happy go lucky gunslinger, in the wild old west.

    Rights of the Wicked- An aggressive police officer violently protects a community that doesn't need him.

    The 'W' in wicked was hard to read by itself.

    outlaw took me a minute to figure out what that word said.

    Ghost Warefare is rather jumbled. The serifs are interlocked, making readability (sp) difficult on the viewer. The eye tends to follow the letters away from the word itself. Maybe add more bold to them to give some distinction.

    American Pulp looks more towards the sixties that it would towards the 30's/40's. Kinda gives that American Grafitti feel than a pulp feel.

    Seems the overall issue is at first glance readability.

    "Everything must serve the idea. The means used to convey the idea should be the simplest and clear. Just what is required. No extra images. To me this is a universal principle of art. Saying as much as possible with a minimum of means."
    -John Huston, Director
