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 2010: The latest news

* They are dropping like flies. There has been another line-up change. Glen Vaudrey writes:


Just confirming what I spoke to you earlier about.

It is with great sadness that I will not be at this year’s weird weekend. This is due to some cretin stealing the signaling wire in the Heald Green area of Manchester. This has stopped the trains to the airport and we only found out when the train journey came to a premature end. Sadly we are too strapped for cash for any alternative transport plans and will not be therefore able to make it. I guess that the water horses will have to go back into the stables for another year.

I hope that nobody notices my absence and that the weekend is a great success.

All the best
