Subscriptions to that fine journal are taken by:

Miss Ann-Marie Storz
1134 Tamalpais Place
Hayward, CA
USA 94542

On the subject of nifty journals, those interested in "a bi-monthly
publication for re-enactors and enthusiasts including information
concerning Europe and America during the Founding Age (1560-1705)"
might like The Moderne Aviso. Subscriptions are $6 per annum (6
issues) from:

Mary Aist
9512 Dubarry Avenue
Seabrook, MD
USA 20706

The current issue announces an English Civil War muster at the Avalon
site (a purpose-built ECW re-creation site) in Virginia in November;
the Pennsbury Manor Fair in Pennsylvania in September, the Saint
Maries Citty Muster in Maryland, etc. In January the folks in St.
Augustine, FL, are running their School of the 16th Century -- just
the right time for people living in the Great White North to follow
their Prime Minister and their grandparents to Florida...

There are also informative articles for the re-enactor, in this issue
a raft of recipes and a great article on period units of measure.

Cheers,
Aryk

I have just received a postcard flyer in this morning's mail about a
new bimonthly magazine being published and seeking charter members.
I think it's interesting and I'm considering subscribing (though I
usually think long and hard before I decide to actually part with
any money). The ad follows in its entirety. I make no recommendations,
but find it rather fascinating.

We have actually received a couple of issues of a newsprint magazine which
goes by the title _Medieval and Renaisance Times_ (I'm 98 per cent sure of
this). It is basically a newsletter used to let people know about the Ren
Faire circuit-- does have some articles in it, but not as many as, say TI.
First issue had an article written by a Californian (if I remember right)
who has been doing both Ren Faire and SCA for a long time. The article
was basically "The people in the SCA really are OK" -- did give a nice
explanation of how the system works-- Crowns, awards, etc.

Those issues were unsolicited and sent to our _business_ name-- definitely
had to have come from Pennsic merchants list (unless they went through small
business legal listings, which I doubt).

They may be trying to upgrade. I don't know, since the last several issues
have gone directly into the recycling bin (after the staples were removed of
course). As it was, it was a cross between TI and a kingdom newsletter for
the Ren Faire circuit. We, too, got one of those cards, and promptly threw
it away.

I've most of the first 4 or 5 years worth of the New Member Times,
and I can attest that they do indeed have a lot of good info (if a
little Midrealm-centric), for both the relatively new member and for
new groups just getting started. The issue on media relations has been
especially useful. When my finances improve, I'll probably
catch up on the back issues.

Just an opinion from a satisfied customer.

Subject: Chivalric Journal
Date: 3 Mar 1994 15:19:12 -0500

For the past two years I have been working to ignite discussions on chivalry,
knighthood and the tournament. To this end, I have produced a journal which
some of you might have seen-- Chronique, the Journal of Chivalry. In this
journal, we attempt to encourage chivalric discussions by posing questions to be
argued in the FORUM section; presenting essays by heartfeld tourneyers and SCA
folk; articles both original and reprinted from mundane scholarship (with
permission, of course). We want to encourage both chivalric attitudes and a
more authentic presentation.

Recently I have begun to post the chivalric questions to the electronic
networks in order to widen the range of responses and to spread the ideas that
have been germinating in Chronique and amongst isolated groups. The cross-
culture is very exciting, and promises rich rewards that I want to share with an
ever-expanding circle of readers.

Recent issues have dealt with: The pas d'Armes, Knightly Orders and Tournament
Societies, Points of Honor, Courtly Love, Arms and Armour, The Meaning of the
Tournament of Chivalry, and Knighthing Ceremonies. The upcoming issue is on
Squires, due for release March 18.

If you would like to be placed on the electronic mailing list to receive
updates and questions, kindly return your email address. I will send you an
introduction and a copy of the current questions that we are receiving replies
on. If at that point you want to return your SCA name, mundane name and address,
and telephone, you may either subscribe to the journal or receive a
free copy comped for contributions that we use. If you only want to receive
questions and news, that is fine too.

Many people have telephoned or written in the past weeks in order to find our
pieces of information related to Chronique--the response has come from the
most recent Compleat Anachronist, entitled "The Best of Chronique."

Each quarter, we pose chivalric questions that are pointed at the topic of
the next issue. These questions are available in the current issue (now #9)
or may be had by request at this email address. Respondents whose answers are
printed receive a free copy of the journal; the regular price is $5 per issue
(64pp average) or $16 per year. Two years are available for $30; all prices
quoted are for US subs.

Issue #9 will be available on June 18. Its theme, as you can tell from the
text below, is William the Marshal. #10, due for release at Pennsic, will
contain articles about 15th century tournaments a la King Rene of Anjou.
Details will include how to make courboille "rene" harness, how to run a
Rene-style list, and details gleaned from Rene's own tournament book.

They (Linda and Casey) will also consider requests for articals on

Organization: Carnegie-Mellon University, School of Computer Science

The last issue of the Pale I got before my subscription ran out contained
an announcement from someone who was starting the "Midrealm A&S newsletter".
There was an announcement that all A&S officers would receive it, and it
wasn't clear whether this was going to contain administrivia, articles, or
what. I wrote and asked for information, and received issue #1 in the mail
a few days ago.

I was pleased to find that, aside from a letter from the editor at the
beginning, it's *entirely* articles. The first issue is 16 (8.5x11) pages;
presumably it will grow over time. The newsletter is intended to be
quarterly.

A subscription rate hasn't been set yet, but the editor promised to let
me know as soon as they get that worked out. Submissions and subscriptions
are welcome from anywhere; it's not being limited to people in the Middle.
This is exactly the sort of thing I've been hoping all year someone would
start. :-)

Anyway, I think it's off to a pretty good start and plan to send them
material; I thought others might be interested in knowing about this too.
The editor, Melisande, has email: 71533.3571@compuserve.com. I'll
send subscription info when I have it to anyone who's interested, or you
can write directly to the editor.

Looking forward to the next issue...

Greetings, from Jessa d'Avondale!

Well, now that I can check through the back issues of T.I. - the last list
of "special interest" newsletters was published in the Spring '91 issue,
and includes brief descriptions and subscription info for: The Blue Feather,
"But It's Period!", Fletch and Point, Flower of Souvenance, The Letter of
Dance, The Millrind, The Needle's Point, and Sources by Mail III. Many
of the addresses and prices given are likely to be out of date, so I won't
list them here. However, as was mentioned, the Corporate A&S officer is
likely to have a more up-to-date list (her address is in T.I. or the kingdom
newsletters).

Date: 1 Jan 1995 13:36:30 -0500

Greetings to the Rialto...

On the subject of unofficial (I prefer "independent", myself), Medieval
Musings is an independent, general interest newsletter for the SCA.

As with most newsletters, I am in need of material. Since MM is general
interest, I will pretty much consider anything of interest to SCA members.
This includes (but is, of course, not limited to) how-to articles,
historical articles, original poetry, original fiction, original songs
(period style or filks), book or movie reviews, amusing stories
(historical or SCA related), little-known historical facts, puzzles,
riddles, cartoons, artwork (cover or interior), reports on major events
(wars, board meetings, etc), flyers and/or other information on major
interkingdom events, and of course, opinions in the form of
letters-to-the-editor.

If you're interested in contributing, please send me an e-mail for more
information.

Thanks.
