First day of the CFZ Weird Weekend...
by Tania Poole - (the only member of CFZ Australia who could make it to North Devon this year.)
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.
On this day in 1890 H.P. Lovecraft was born. Lovecraft wrote several jolly stories for small children about kids going to strange lands in the clouds after visiting a David Cameron look-a-like in a big tree and about gangs of child mystery solvers of varying size... Oh, wait, that was Enid Blyton, Lovecraft wrote horror stories.
And now the news:
