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...

DAVE BRAUND-PHILLIPS: WW2012 preparations

Hi Everyone, just a quick message to let you know how my preparations for the Weird Weekend 2012 are going.

All the lecturers are prepared and ready, most of the stalls are arranged and last night I even got my bloody computer to work, all is going well. Just a few moments ago I received am email from the people behind The Hexem Heads film, that we at the Weird Weekend have the pleasure of premiering. I urge you all to come and see it, as it promises to be a very special event!

To get a small taste of the Hexem Heads extravaganza you can view the official trailer:

I look forward to seeing you all there! Go Weird Weekend 2012 WOOP WOOP!!

Can you ger me a mortar board teacher's hat, as worn by Teacher in the Bash Street Kids and other literary works? It's not vital.
