Okay. I certainly support such A&S publications.  I will for  
instance, willingly withhold placing a piece of work in the  
Florilegium until after it is published where it was originally  
written for, and then some time.  If editors will send me the table  
of contents for such newsletters and the information on where folks  
can buy back issues I will gladly add this to the Florilegium.

One of the problems with such limited distribution newsletters is  
that only the people on the subscription list at that time know about  
the article and many are published so erratically that is hard for  
someone outside of their area to know when particular issues are  
available. I'd like to give good articles which will be of use to  
folks across the Known World, a larger distribution.  As a side  
effect, I also like to give good authors more visibility than just  
locally.  We can all learn from each other.

I have no problem with an article in the Florilegium being published  
elsewhere. In fact, if I know about it, I will put a note in a file  
giving some word-of-mouth fame to the other publication.  I have  
articles in the Florilegium that were first published in TI. As well,  
there are articles that were first published in the Florilegium and  
later in TI. The same with various Kingdom and local newsletters.

Of course if an article is bought by a publication and they thus has  
the copyright, then neither I nor the author have the right to  
publish it in its entirety elsewhere.  However, I don't know of any  
SCA publications where the author does not maintain control of the  

Thanks for considering it, though.
