WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

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...

ANOTHER E-MAIL FROM SOSTRATUS WINSTON

I don't know why these e-mails intrigue me so, but only a few days after I replied to his previous one, Sostratus Winston (fabulous name) has written again....

My dear Mr Downes,

Thank you for posting my correspondence again, on your lovely website. I must confess that the video you put at the bottom of the page was not the one that I saw but I did find it very informative, so thank you for that also. One must assume that, since they are our closest living relatives, ape men, like human beings, can be either good or bad and one must deduce from each individual’s behaviour whether he/ she is to be trusted or not. I dare say to the devout Christians among the cryptozoological community, the gift of discernment of spirits might be useful; presumably it works just as well on cousins of our species but I am not an expert in religious activities, preferring, rather, to believe in the things that I can see.

Incidentally, my dear fellow, I wonder if you might be interested in receiving a plaster cast of an alleged Bigfoot footprint, taken by a friend of mine on an expedition in New Mexico about three years ago. I know as a fact that he still has it. It’s on his mantelpiece but I dare say he could be persuaded to give it up in the name of science.

Yours sincerely,

Sostratus Winston
