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: Health update

Hello people! Just thought I'd drop a line on the bloggo to say I'm back (ish). I got out of hospital Tuesday evening and am back home at last.

The 'ish' was because although I'm back online today at least, I'm not really back in the sense I would like. Put bluntly, until further notice, I can do naff all. I actually shattered my ankle into lots of little pieces apparently, and had to have surgery to put lots of little metal pieces added to help it on the knitting back together process. I've been told that as this is quite a bad break, certainly till the cast is off at least, I've basically got to sit on my bottom all day, getting large and lazy.

The pain can be bad and by extension, very tiring, so I may not be as regularly online and blog-subbing as much as I'd like to.

Thank you to all the well-wishers; you're very kind. Thank you mainly, though, to my Mum and my lovely Paul, who have been and continue to be for that matter, amazing.
