Winter Kindling: The Conversion Continues

After sparking some interest in our newly-converted chapbook titles last week, we’re fanning the flames with two full-length ebook conversions this week. This batch was a little tricky because one of them contained a lot of accented letters. These letters converted well in the main text, but in the poem titles (which were set in small-caps) we had to look up some hexadecimal codes for manual replacement. Again, big thanks to Kurt Graustein for refining this process even further to keep our Winter Kindling project moving.

This week’s converted titles are:
