We're almost ready for the final round of this year's Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Short Story Title.

I've put the second-place finishers from each of the first eight rounds into the poll below.
The one with the most votes will join the other heat winners in the final.

ETA: My apologies: I messed up the wording on the poll question. It says 'Heat 8, but it's really heat nine. Also, you can only choose one title in this round [other than that, I got it perfect.]
