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...

ANDREW MAY: Sasquatch from an unusual source

Just to draw your attention to something you may not have seen .

There was a news story recently about a man named Rupert Matthews (who sounds much too intelligent to be a Tory politician) who was removed from a candidate list by the Party Chairman when she found out he had written books about UFOs. I wrote about the subject on my blog - http://forteana-blog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/alien-politics.html (Rupert Matthews is the second of two news stories I mentioned).

I also started following Rupert's blog, called The Ghost Hunter, and he has just done a post about Sasquatch that I thought you might be interested in simply because it comes from such an unlikely source! http://ghosthunteratlarge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/events-of-1958-propelled-sasquatch-or.html

Mr Matthews has been doing the rounds for many years. One of those armchair researchers who seems more than happy writing vague stories based on the work of others!
