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...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today


On this day in 1979 the nefarious Margaret Thatcher became British prime minister,and proceeded to destroy the mining and manufacturing industries of Britain. Bizarrely the Tories won on a minority of the vote and all parities have done so in every election they have 'won' apart from 2 in the last 100 years. It's crazy when you think about it.

On a lighter note it's Star Wars Day today, so May the 4th be with you.
And now the news:

Walkers spot missing bald eagle Pilgrim in Perthsh...
Schools Locked Down After Bear Sighting
For many Russians, UFO and Bigfoot equally realist...

Alien lands on the front lawn... Offer it a cup of tea:

That is why we must have proportional representation, rather than the iniquitous 'first past the post' or the even less democratic AV that the current gang of crooks are trying to CON us into now.
