Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for February, describing what is new in the Florilegium this month.
If you are an editor of an SCA publication and would like to get a copy of this monthly article a month earlier by email for your newsletter, please email me and give me your name, persona name and title, SCA group and newsletter name and the email address to use. I also produce a version of this same article for web publication if you are the maintainer of an SCA oriented web page.
If you are currently on, or have been on, my list of editors you might want to contact me again. Netscape 6.02 has once again lost some of my entries. While I am working to rebuild the list, getting an email wouldn't hurt and it would confirm that you still want to recieve the monthly article.
I am always interested in new articles to add to the Florilegium. My standard policy is that the author keeps the copyright. I just want get neat, useful articles out to the members of the Society.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past thirteen 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.
A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me by email in either Word or text formats.
If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before I notice it myself.
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.
