    At last I manage to post something

    Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking around for a while, since the whole Strange Chemistry open submission thing in fact. But I only just managed to join the site a couple of weeks ago and only now am I getting around to posting an introduction.

    I've been writing bits and pieces on and off for years, but mostly getting nowhere. Just lately I wrote some background and short fiction bits for a roleplaying game called Broken Rooms, and I also submitted my five chapters to Strange Chemistry and got a request for full after many long tense months.

    Now distracting myself by writing a post-apocalyptic nightmare thing for nanowrimo and not thinking about my other manuscript at all, not remotely, not now, not ever...

    :-o

    Welcome to AW!
    Before going into battle, Vikings would ingest Amanita muscaria. In addition to being moderately poisonous, Amanita muscaria eliminated fear causing them to be feared warriors earning Vikings the nick name berserkers.
