Greetings to the Known World,

Enclosed is a copy of my Florilegium article meant for June 
publication. This article details what is new in my Florilegium
files for June.

I am always looking for new articles and bibliographies that
would be of interest to those in the SCA. If you have one that
you think would be of interest, please contact me.

If you find a bad link or a problem with the Florilegium, please
let me know. What I don't know about, I can't fix. The Florilegium
gets changed and updated almost every day and errors do creep in.

If you have suggestions on things you would like to see in the
Florilegium or new topics you'd like to see, again please email
me. We are working on an internal search engine, for instance,
and hope to have it online in the future.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past ten 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:

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special 
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file 
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the 
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me 
by email in either Word or text formats.

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.
