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...

DALE DRINNON: New at 'Frontiers of Anthropology'

I have been having problems getting blogs up lately but I finally did get the two pending Frontiers of Anthropology blogs up. The first one is about revising the Ancient Egyptian chronology, by Immanuel Velikovsky and others:

And the second is another guest blog by Jayasree, which speaks about ancient relationships between Russia and Veddic India (Includes reference to woolly mammoths):

Two blog entries are pendng at Cedar And Willow and I should be passing those through next, which shall make a total of 28 postings for the month of December out of the three blogs. Plus the two on CFZ Canada makes 30. Not quite one a day but, hey, it's a 31-day month.

Best Wishes, Dale D.
