Now available at Amazon “Fifty Years of Re-creating the Middle Ages: A history of the Society for Creative Anachronism.” This is not a history of the kingdoms, baronies, households etc. that make up the Current Middle Ages. It’s the history of the organization, the movement and the people who make up the SCA and how it has grown and changed over the years; with a gorgeous cover by Merald Clark (Merowald de Sylveaston). Book by Steven Muhlberger, AKA Duke Finnvarr de Taahe.

The Ealdormere Gazette has been contacted by the compiler of the Drakenfjord songbook Bardic Babblings, Dame Katrin Karlsdöttir. She said:
I am very sorry to all whose works are in the Bardic babblings file currently up omn the Drakenfjord website. The Book is a copy of my personal lyric sheet collection with my annotations regarding where they all came from trimmed out and a few articles I was using to teach a bardic class It was never supposed to be published at all! Now that I am aware the files were thrown together and published I am working to get it taken down asap. I have taken the whole library down until everything can be checked for proper credits and permissions.
The Bardic Babbling file has been taken off the Drakenfjord page.

And that was just SKIMMING.” (more…)
