Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

Liz Clancy is a nice girl; one of those girls from an Enid Blyton book who always comes to the aid of those in trouble, or those whom she percieves as being unfairly maligned.

She saw Richard Freeman's St George's Day video from a few years back, and wrote to me:

"Hope you are okay. I saw Richard's St. George video recently on the site and also found this article the other day that was rather more complimentary of the saint so I thought it might be nice for the blog so both sides are presented. It's from Crusader Magazine, which is a Roman Catholic mag based in Manchester."

So, as I always do what pretty girls tell me to, here it is...

A pox on Saint George and hurrah for the dragon!
