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...

VARIOUS SNIPPETS OF NEWS FROM THE EXPEDITION



There have been several communiques from the two away teams. None of them are earth-shattering in their importance, but it does appear that everything is indeed going to plan.

DALE DRINNON: Posts on the Patterson bigfoot, mothman and Neanderthals

I just reprinted an item from the CFZ blog November 2010 on the Frontiers of Zoology blog:
http://frontiersofzoology.blogspot.com/2011/09/cfz-reprint-patty-is-not-man-in-suit.html

I also added a couple of images from Bill Munn's demonstration to make my point: I should probably add that the demonstration is mine in this case and not his.

I had not expected anything else tonight but I got a surprise notice that I had to turn into a new blog posting:

Also a recent Yahoo News Item on Frontiers of Anthropology:
