Fr John Blaker
I’m a Catholic priest retired on disability. I spent 20 years as a parish priest and 6 years as hospital chaplain. I’ve been a fan since the 1970s: the first con I attended was Westercon in 1975. I am a master level costumer and have worked behind the scenes at masquerades for many years. I was head of events at the first Worldcon in San Jose. I enjoy reading, writing, 3-d printing, bookbinding, SF, Fantasy, and Horror films and tv. I am a particular fan of Babylon 5, Guillermo Del Toro, & Wednesday.
