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...

DIRECTORS DIARY: Start as you mean to go on

Well, the year is only two days old and already I am making excuses. However, life has got in the way (I am trying to stick to my New Year's resolution by not quoting THAT quote from John Lennon at this point), and the 2010 Yearbook, which was supposed to be finished in time for New Year's Eve, still has a few more days of work left in it.

However, we are now two thirds of the way through and it should be at the printers on Monday, which is, after all, the main thing.

However, because of the delay, the January episode of On the Track, which should have been released yesterday, will be another day or two because I haven't actually started it yet.

Hope it covers your New Zealand trip.

"Life is what happens to you while you're making other plans."

One of the more profound lines ever coined.

Song isn't bad either.

I think it's a bit of a ripoff of the old Yiddish proverb "We plan; God laughs."
