Half-Price Sale in Frankenstein's Family

The half-price sale has SOLD OUT.  Thank you for your enthusiasm!

This week, the poetry of Frankenstein's Family is on sale for half price from Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 22.  This series is gothic fluff.  It features themes of science, intellectualism, cuddly creatures, family of choice, friendship, Transylvanian culture, and social engineering.  There are 5 poems, was $891, half price $445.50.  We currently have two epics open for microfunding, neither in this series, so you can open a new one if you wish.

The first two poems stand alone.  The later three make up a triptych, and come after a story that Dialecticdreamer has written, "Urgent Business," slated to begin posting on Wednesday, so there are prerequisites before those poems can be published.  They can be sponsored at any time, just have to wait for publication until something else gets posted first.  Those are marked accordingly.

Currently available are the following poems.  They appear in series chronological order,

"Truth, Lovingly Told"
Csilla asks Dorottya and Dénes for another feeding, only to discover that demisexual men don't fare well at high speed.
