Greetings to the Gentle Folk of the SCA-Cooks list,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for October, telling what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
Please accept my apologies for the late delivery of this article. I
spent the first week of this month in the hospital with an infected
leg and then spent the last few days backing up and rebuilding the
file system on my computer because of a disk corruption.
As always I'm looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you
have written any papers for an A&S competition or even documentation
which will stand alone without the actual display, I'd love to have
them for the Florilegium. This is your chance to let folks across the
Known World see what you have been working on, and perhaps to
interest others in your favorite activity.
I am also putting together a "suggested articles" list. If you have
an idea for an article which you'd like to read, but haven't seen
anywhere, please let me know and I'll add it to this list and perhaps
someone will get inspired and write such an article.
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
