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...

CFZ PUBLISHING: Atco and Grass out as ebook

We are the world's leading publishers of cryptozoology, fortean, and cryptozoology related books with over a hundred titles currently in print. We have also launched an imprint for fortean fiction, called - appropriately enough - Fortean Fiction..

Over on the CFZ Publishing Group blog Dr Andrew May has just posted:
ATCO & Grass Kindle version

Jim Jackson’s collection of short stories ATCO & Grass, which was published as a paperback last November, is now out as a Kindle ebook as well.
From Orpington to Australia, from inner space  to outer space, lovers, millionaires, scientists and fugitives from justice are just some of the characters the author paints for us with colourful precision. Every narrative is a miniature masterpiece in a great storytelling tradition.
