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...

ARCHIVING PROJECT: General Forteana Part 44

As you know, Oll has been working on the archiving project since early February 2009 and he is now working on a general mish-mash of a section known as `General Forteana`.

This 44th collection once again really is a collection of completely uncategoriseable stuff, including a lot of archaeology, ageing in worms, an escaped jaguar in a plane, the genetics of rabbits, and the heart of Robert the Bruce. Good stuff.

ON THE TRACK

The latest episode of On The Track is finished, but due to our internet connection being very slow here at the moment, it has failed to upload. Hopefully it will be up later today....

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday's News Today

On this day in 1928 Bob Monkhouse was born. Monkhouse was in my opinion the greatest comedian Britain ever produced but was perhaps best known as a quiz show host. He was also recently revealed as the owner of one of the first television recorders ever made and recorded a personal collection of over 36,000 videotapes, which is thought may contain missing episodes of Doctor Who.
