Greetings to the Gentles of Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November detailing what
is new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a
little known art or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire
I have heard that the GeoCities free websites are going away. If you
have such a site with SCA-type files and don't wish to move to the pay
version, the files that you have worked so hard to produce, may make a
good addition to the Florilegium. I am in the process of moving
several articles on tablet weaving by Eve the Just from GeoCities to
the Florilegium and would be happy to consider more.
If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this
monthly article for your print newsletter several weeks before I post
it to the mail lists, please contact me. If you publish a newsletter
on the web, I also have a version of this article which includes the
links for each file. If you would like to get on my list for the web
version of this article, please email me.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past nineteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
this information available to others, I have placed this information
in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation and class
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in
