Greetings to the Gentlefolk of the SCA,

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

I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have  
researched something in our period or you practice a little known art  
or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to introduce others  
to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in academic papers  
written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few have time at such  
an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them published in the  
Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire Known World.  Word  
format is the easiest for me to handle, but others are possible.

My career is taking an increasing amount of my time so I have less  
time to devote to maintaining the Florilegium. My health is also  
declining. So I am looking for one or more people who would like to  
help me with collecting messages and articles, editing and maintaining  
the site, perhaps even to keep it going after I am no longer to do so.  
If you might be interested, please contact me.

If you, your household or your local group run a website, please  
consider adding a link there to the Florilegium. Not only does this  
help people who might be interested in what the Florilegium offers  
find the site, but it raises the site in the Google ratings and thus  
might bring in more ad money to keep the site going.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past twenty-two 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 called 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 well. I am especially interested in  
research papers submitted as A&S entries.

Advertisements on the site pay for its upkeep. If you enjoy the  
Florilegium, please click on an ad or two whenever you are there.
