Stefan's Florilegium Additions for April 2004

THL Stefan li Rous offers updates to "Stefan's Florilegium" for April. Greetings,

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

If you are the editor of an SCA newsletter and would like to get a copy of this article several weeks in advance so you can meet your various leadtimes, please get in touch with me. I also produce a version of this article formatted for posting on SCA oriented websites and if you would like that, again just contact me by email.

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

Thanks,

Stefan

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past fourteen 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.

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 more details.

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 details.
