Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

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

If you would like to see a file on a subject not currently covered in  
the Florilegium, please let me know and I'll see if I can find enough  
information to create a message file on that subject or see if I can  
convince someone to write an article.

If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this  
article several weeks in advance so you can publish it, please  
contact me for more details. I also write a version of this letter  
meant for publication on websites. Again, if you run an SCA oriented  
website and would like to get a copy of the web article each month,  
please contact me.

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  
more details.

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.  As I was laid off in  
May, any amount would help me keep this site going.
