Greetings to the gentle folk across the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November detailing what
is new in my Florilegium files.

I am now having trouble sending this article to maillists where I
could send it a while back. These mail lists and the address I
currently have for them are:
Kingdom of the Outlands    outlands at linux08.unm.edu
Kingdom of An Tir          steps at antir.sca.org

If the addresses for these maillists have changed, could someone
please tell me the new addresses? If these lists are now closed to
non-subscribers and you think that this monthly article would be of
interest to those on that list and you would be willing to forward
this article there each month, please contact me. If you are on
another maillist that this article doesn't presently go to and you
think that it should, please contact me.

As you can see, many of the files in the Florilegium are articles
that were sent to me by their authors. If you have written something
that might be of interest to others in the SCA, please think of
sending me a copy for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. The
copyright remains with the author and I accept updates or removal
requests. If you see an article in a local newsletter that you
think would fit in the Florilegium, please suggest to the author
that they contact me.


A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past eleven 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 series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me
by email in either Word or text formats.

If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website,
please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it
that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before
I notice it myself.

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. Contact me for more details.
