This is the title of a short story I'm writing:
The Sunday Earthquake and the Red Planet in the Sky
I don't know why, but I think it reads better if I remove of the "thes":
Sunday Earthquake and the Red Planet in the Sky
I've seen this be done before. For instance in two stories, by the Japanese author Haruki Murakami:
Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of The World
The Wind-Up Bird and Tuesday's Women
I'm not very sure, though. Maybe the second "the" isn't necessary in the two examples above. Is it OK to omit one "the" if there are two in the title of a book/story?
