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...

THE GONZO BLOG DOO DAH MAN SURVIVES

The Gonzo Daily - Tuesday
 
And so, dear friends, it is all over for another year. I suppose that I really should apologize for not having sent blogs out – either for the CFZ, or Gonzo – yesterday but the brutally honest truth is:
 
After getting home from the Weird Weekend on Sunday night I imbibed a little brandy, said goodnight to my nearest and dearest, and went to bed. I woke up insanely early in order to say good bye to the children as they left to take Lars and his son to Bristol airport before making there own way back to Staffordshire. I then went back to bed and didn’t get up until tea time, whereupon I went into Bideford with Graham to get a takeaway curry and some beer, consumed a little of both and went back to bed.
 
So there were no blogs yesterday.
 
The Weird Weekend was very successful and everybody involved seems to have enjoyed it massively. Roll on next year… but not to fast please.
