Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for the month of November  
detailing the new files in the Florilegium this month.

This message should be going to all kingdom mailing lists. If you are  
on another list, so you have seen this, but you don't see it on your  
kingdom list, please let me know so I can work on finding and fixing  
any problems.

I also create a version of this article each month for websites,  
which includes links for each file. If you run a website and would  
like to be added to my monthly list to get a copy of the web version  
of this article, please contact me.

If you have written an article that you, or your friends, think would  
be a good addition to the Florilegium, please send a copy to me. The  
author keeps the copyright to any material I use and its a good way  
to help out others all around the Known World.  If you have an idea  
for an article you would like to see, please email me with the  
suggestion and I will add it to my "Article Ideas list" which  
hopefully will get added to the site soon.


A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past sixteen 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

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.

I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping  
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,  
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more  

For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in  
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of  
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the  
overhead costs of keeping the site running.
