Profile Information

Introduction
Professor E.Caleb Friedman, purveyor of Norton's Emperor Elixirs -- customizable to your particular need or ailment! Wanderer, Initiate, Past & Future Master. Dilettante scion of an old Northeastern family of ships' masters & privateers (& a Brother to Pirates & Corsairs), I have dwelt inland these past few years by the banks of the Mighty Mississippi -- although formerly, I spent many a year in Jerusalem, not far from the Jordan. Visions, holy & unholy, are my constant domain.
