Greetings to the Gentle Folk of the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for January 2006, detailing
the new and some of the updated files for this month.
I also make this article available to editors of SCA newsletters on
my list several weeks in advance. This allows them the time they need
to meet their publication deadlines, yet still be able to publish the
latest article. If you are an editor and would like to be added to my
list, please contact me.
I am always looking for additional good articles for the Florilegium.
If you know of any web sites, especially ones run by individuals,
where there are articles you think deserve a wider distribution,
please send me the details and I will contact the authors for
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
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.
