Greetings to the Gentles of SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for October 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.

I have heard that the GeoCities free websites are going away. If you  
have such a site with SCA-type files and don't wish to move to the pay  
version, the files that you have worked so hard to produce, may make a  
good addition to the Florilegium. I am in the process of moving  
several articles on tablet weaving by Eve the Just from GeoCities to  
the Florilegium and would be happy to consider more.

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 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.
