IAmA Vikings Expert Who Just Published A New Translation of the Norse Myths. AMA
My short bio: I have a Ph.D. in Scandinavian Studies (specializing in medieval Scandinavia) from the University of Wisconsin and I taught Old Norse, Vikings, Norse myth, etc. at UCLA from 2011-14. I recently published the first translation of the Poetic Edda (the main source of Norse mythology) that is intended for a general readership.
My Proof: Compare the author photo on the book's Amazon page (http://www.amazon.com/Poetic-Edda-Stories-Hackett-Classics/dp/1624663567) to the photo here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/y5x5zk2oe4vy4tj/2015-04-10.jpg?dl=0).
Edit 4/13: I am very grateful for the interest but time constraints are going to force me to have to close this AMA. Thank you everyone!
