Greetings to the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for December which details
what is new in the Florilegium for this month.

Thanks to the generosity of some of the folks of the Shire of
Adamestor in Cape Town, South Africa, there are a number of new
articles this month.

I am always looking for new articles. If you think there are some
good articles that have been written for your local newsletter
that you think other folks around the Known World might be 
interested in, please contact me. I will not publish anything
without the permission of the original article authors, but
your nomination and contact info will get the process started.

If you find a bad link in the Florilegium, please let me know.
If I don't know about it, I can't fix it.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past eleven 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.

If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, 
please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it
that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before
I notice it myself.

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.
