The Meager Puddle of Limelight Awards: Voting for the BEST TITLES is now open

At last, the moment you've all been mildly interested in has arrived! 

We had a lot of great entries, but now it's time to select the winners of the 2009 Meager Puddle of Limelight Awards for 'Best Title' .   

Set out below are three polls.  All you have to do is select your favorite title in each category (Book; short story or novella; flash fiction).  Voting is open to any LJ user. 

Voting closes at noon (US/Eastern) on Monday, September 28th, but if you're curious, you can see who's winning at any time (but not who voted for what). 

Winners in each category will be interviewed by yours truly.  If that isn't punishment enough, they also get an invitation to appear on a 'special guest blog spot' here on this journal.
