      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
      Known World.

      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
      A&S papers.
