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 LITTLE PEOPLE OF THE STONES ISSUE
In this remarkably eclectic issue, which is one of my favourites for a while, Alan discusses the events surrounding this summer’s Solstice  Celebrations at Stonehenge, Doug presents the first of two looks at the delectable Annabella Lwin and Bow wow wow, Jon looks at where this magazine stands vis-a-vis the music press as a whole, we celebrate a partial victory for the tree protestors over Sheffield City Council, John goes to Yorkshire for the Shangri-La of speakers, Jeremy critiques the new book on the Flamin’ Groovies, together with fantastic pix from George Alexander’s collection, and Graham brings us up to date with Hawkwind news.
