Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

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

As you can see, this months new files consist mostly of some  
interesting articles submitted by a number of different authors.   
Writing an article on what you've been researching or crafting is a  
good way to give back to the Society which we have created. And you  
don't have to wait until your article is perfect, since, unlike with  
paper publication where you can seldom update an article, I am  
willing to accept updates at any time.

Publishing your work in the Florilegium may get you questions and  
comments which can improve your knowledge and the article. If you are  
thinking of submitting an article to TI, the Compleat Anachronist or  
elsewhere, this input may help you improve your article before it  
gets frozen into paper form.

If you have any comments about or suggestions for, the Florilegium,  
please feel free to email me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past eighteen 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 collection 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. A&S documentation  
and class handouts will also often work out well.

The authors who have submitted articles for the Florilegium often  
have included explicit permission for republication in SCA  
newsletters. If you use something from the Florilegium in your  
newsletter, please read these permissions and follow them. Although  
it is often quite easy to send an author a copy or your publication  
or let them at least know by email that you are using their article,  
I'm getting complaints from some authors that editors are not even  
doing the latter. For a group of people that hold honor in high  
regard, this should not happen.
