The Bradley Font and Classic Pulp

I found this today on Twitter:

And it’s entirely in line with the whole Pulp Revolution indie scene, in which classic pulp fantasy tropes are lovingly dusted off and embraced. Cirsova Magazine is a good go-to (I’ve bought an issue; it’s excellent if you like that sort of thing), all hail the spirit of Robert Howard.

It’s a bit over the top, frankly, and I don’t know if I’d want to use it for my big fantasy project that I keep telling myself I’m going to start. But I might like to throw down a longish novella for 2020, along lines earlier alluded to. Since this would be a self-pub, I’m fine with playing up the glorious pulp-cheese of it.

You might ask why I’d even think about such a thing when the story’s in outline form. I say unto you, the spirit of composition matters. I think in the next few days I’ll start jumping on the first chapter.

Here’s another look at the Bradley font.

2018 Publishing Plan imminent.

I will be posting something within the next few days about my current publishing plans. Right now I’m dealing with some manner of gastrointestinal distress. The long and short of it, 2018 is going to be a big year.

Upcoming Book

Pursuant to last week’s Book Blog Bleg, I have decided to cull the best of my old dead blogs into a single volume and publish them on Amazon using CreateSpace. It will be a short tome, to keep prices small. I’m also going to publish it on Kindle.

The suddenly low entry costs of Amazon publishing are making me consider setting up my own imprint as a sideline. Details to follow in this space.
