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...

WEIRD WEEKEND SCRAPBOOK: What Lizzy Did Next

'August' is right this year; not only is the eighth month of 2009 the one in which I turned a quarter century, it has also seen me attend my first Weird Weekend and suffer my first hangover! I have enjoyed myself immensely so far despite being convinced I was dying for much of this morning and we haven't even got to the talks yet! Since first getting involved with the CFZ in March I have made several new friends and it has been lovely to meet everyone in the flesh at last. If I survive long enough to get home on Tuesday (and the abundant presence of alcohol at Myrtle cottage makes this questionable, frankly) I have another two weeks of summer in which to complete the other 'firsts' on my 'to-do list' - namely capturing my very own sasquatch and persuading all my detractors that cheese soup actually is tastier than it looks.
