For Our New Visitors: Hail and well met!
With more and more kingdom newsletters running Guillaume’s syndicated columns, we’re delighted to welcome new readers to this website from across the Known World. We hope you are ready to explore the SCA through a whole new perspective — which means, we hope you have a little irreverence, a lot of patience and a rather warped sense of humor. Guillaume’s writing is definitely “unique.”
Pleased To Meet You
Let us introduce you to Sir Guillaume and Baroness Felinah – on the day of their wedding, no less.
Felinah is the cute one; Guillaume is the one who looks like the cheesy bad-guy in every Robin Hood movie you’ve ever seen.
What You’ll Find Here
If you would like to read some (or some more) of Sir Guillaume’s humorous writings about life in the SCA, you have come to the right place. Excerpts are available on the Product page for each book, or take a look at Freebies and you can enjoy several stories — including several complete articles you won’t find anywhere but on this website. If you purchased one of Guillaume’s books and/or CDs at a recent tourney or war, we hope you’re enjoying them. If you want to buy more of Guillaume’s products, just follow this link to the SirGuillaume.com store.
But Wait, There’s More!
Don’t Miss This: Two collectors’ books are now available exclusively through SirGuillaume.com — “Calafia Remembers” and “Calafian Meditations.” Quantities are limited — visit the product pages for more details. Guillaume’s book “This Sovereign Stage,” reflections on the drama of the passing of the Crown, is also still available.
Some of Guillaume’s (Rare) Serious Thoughts can be found at his “other” website, Chivalry Today.
