Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for October, detailing what  
is new in the Florilegium this month.

I am currently putting together a list of "desired articles" to be  
posted on the website. Perhaps this list will encourage some of the  
talented authors we have in the SCA, who say "But I don't know what  
to write about" to produce an article or two. So, if there are any  
articles you would like to see written, please email me and I will  
consider your suggestions for this list.


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.
