The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics has been a stupendous success.  Based on my records, I have posted all of the currently sponsored poems.  Donors, please compare your requests and my math to make sure everything has been posted correctly; if there's a mismatch, contact me backchannel and we'll work it out.  Handling quarter-price numbers is at the fringe of my capacity, so it helps to have folks check my work.  Readers, visit the sale page to read all of the new poems, in case you missed any.  The published ones are linked from their titles.

You can now vote in the first general fund poll. I plan to close that Monday night, and make a followup poll of the most popular items, so you can choose which poems to sponsor.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Cheersquad gives Zima some ideas for helping Lakia.  "A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Saraphina wrap up in the Wood Room.  "Bearers of Witness with Justice" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  See the whale toys.
