It's Puddlin' Time!

Welcome to the first (of three) qualifying rounds to select the finalist for this year's MEAGER PUDDLE OF LIMELIGHT AWARD FOR BEST SHORT STORY TITLE.

What's at stake?  Bragging rights for the winner, as well as an interview and/or guest post here on An Englishman in New Jersey.  If I can figure out how to do it, there'll be a cool Vene, vidi, puddli icon for everyone who entered.

You can vote for as many entries (in each question) as you like in each round. When the dust settles, the eight titles with the most votes from all three qualifying rounds will go through to the final (in the event of a tie, those in joint eighth position will both (or all) go through).
