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...

THE DOWNSIDE OF LIVING IN A VILLAGE WITH TWO NAMES..

Mike and Ruby are better publicists for the CFZ than we are; however the editors of the website got the address wrong....

UFO investigators and people who track down sightings of strange wild animals will descend on a Devon village for their annual conference next month. The Weird Weekend takes place in Woolfardisworthy, near Crediton, on the weekend of August 13 to 14. During the event authors Mike Williams and Rebecca Lang will unveil their new book, Australian Big Cats: An Unnatural History of Panthers, which speculates about the origins of, and studies the evidence for, big cats Down Under.

Don't be daft. It happens every year. I remember one of our speakers who will remain nameless because he was very stoned telephoning me at midnight one weekend to tell me he was lost and couldn't find my house. It took about twenty minutes of him describing a village that I had never seen for me to realise that he was at the wrong Woolsery! So use the satnav guys - postcode EX39 5QR
