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...

CFZ PEOPLE: Lizzy is in hospital

Thoughts and prayers please for Lizzy Clancy, bloggo sub-editor, who was admitted to hospital on monday. She is OK, (I spoke to her last night) but is mightily fed up because she has nothing to do and reckons (with some justification) that in her abscence spelling and grammar atrocities will increase tenfold on the blogo.

Get well soon honey.

Get well soon, Lizzy. As Jon points out, I'm sure the bloggo will suffer grammatically while you're away :) And I only say that half in jest as I'm quite pedantic when it comes to my own scribblings, although I'm willing to let it go when I read somebody else's!

We miss you, Lizzy. Hope you're feeling better soon!
