Greetings to the Gentle folk across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for June, detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
If you run a website, I also produce a special version of this
article meant for publication on websites. If you would like to get a
copy of that version each month, please email me. Or if you are an
editor of an SCA newsletter and would like to get a copy of this
article several weeks in advance so you have enough time to get all
your pre-press work done, please email me.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past eighteen 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 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
