[contests] Escapement ARC Contest Voting Poll

Here's the results of the first phase of the fabulous ARC contest. I asked that either a limerick or a haiku, tell me in comments why you should receive an ARC of Escapement. Props for being mad funny or over the top.

This is the voting poll to decide the winner. I will also invoke judge's discretion and award an Audible.com gift card to my personal favorite. The card can be used for two Audible titles, including Mainspring Powell's | Amazon | Audible ] or any other title, including Old Man's War, A War of Gifts: An Ender Story or any of the Dune books.

Of course, you can always pre-order Escapement your own personal self...
