Half-Price Sale: Polychrome Heroics
This week the unsold contents of Polychrome Heroics are on sale for half price, running July 15-21. If you can't afford to sponsor a whole poem, remember that epic poems (anything over 60 lines) can be funded at $.25/line. This superhero series features themes of identity, justice, agency, compassion, perseverance, oppression, communication, and empowerment. You can read more about the world of Terramagne.

Currently available are these poems, expanding the focus beyond Damask:

"Lifeyears" SOLD
Mad science sets a peasant girl on the path to becoming a supervillain.
312 lines, was $156, sale price $78

"Nailed, Screwed, and Trued" SOLD
Granny Whammy has a classification system for how superheroes solve problems.
53 lines, was $20, sale price $10

"Dr. Doohickey and the Mad Science Scrambler" SOLD
A supposedly dead superhero returns to foil the latest plan by Mr. Pernicious.
130 lines, was $65, sale price $32.50

"Throwing Souls Like So Much Clay" SOLD
A poor black lesbian supervillain breaks the social rules by helping people in unapproved ways.
116 lines, was $58, sale price $29

I also have a new Damask poem:

"Headmates" SOLD
Maze uses a notebook to communicate with the other people sharing her body.
212 lines, was $106, sale price $53

On the one hand, I'm tempted to sponsor "Dr. Doohickey and the Mad Science Scrambler" as a gift to Barnstead, the late and much-lamented Pernicious the Musquodoboit Harbour Farm Cat's faithful amanuensis and general factotum. (Just for clarity, Pernicious is late and much-lamented; Barnstead is alive and much-beloved.)

On the other hand, I really want to read "Throwing Souls Like So Much Clay".

I shall ponder.

Would you like to see backchannel copies to help make up your mind?

Re: Well...

I think I'll go with Dr. Doohickey (I'll send the Paypal this evening when I get home from work), and signal boost this post in hopes that someone else will sponsor Souls like Clay.
