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...

A NOTE FROM DALE

I was just notified that "Typhon" had left a message on my old CFZ blogs that had mentioned Griffins and Arimaspai, and wondered how I could say that Griffens were ostriches. There was a problem when those old CFZ blogs were set up in that I did not approve the comments myself, Jon did, and so it could take years before I became aware of any certain comment if I wasn't careful. In this case, it did take years and the blog entry has already been printed up in last year's CFZ yearbook.

However if "Typhon" would like to email me privately we could get together on the subject after this long delay, and hopefully get a new blog to come out of it. As a matter of faxct, I do not consider the Griffin to be one thing but an amalgam of several things (typical of me as you should know by now!)
