Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

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

I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have  
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a  
little known art or craft writing an article is an excellent way to  
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in  
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few  
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them  
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire  
Known World.

My standard policy is that the copyright remains with the author and I  
will accept updates or removal requests at any time. So you don't have  
to wait until you have that "perfect" article. You can update it as  
you learn more. In the meantime, folks can be learning from your paper  
and you might get some good, useful feedback. Even if your article has  
been previously published elsewhere, I'm happy to consider it. Not  
everyone around the Known World has seen your kingdom's A&S issue or  
your local group's newsletter. I'm happy to give credit to the  
publication where an article was first published by adding a notation  
to an article.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past nineteen 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 have added an RSS feed for the Florilegium website. If you are  
already reading RSS feeds, please add the Florilegium RSS feed to find  
out when new and updated files as well as new features get added to  
the website. If you are unfamiliar with RSS, or Real Simple  
Syndication, it is a method built into many web browsers, and also  
available as a separate tool, which alerts you when the contents of  
your favorite websites have been changed.

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. I am especially interested in  
A&S papers.
