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
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.
