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...

Gonzo Weekly #389/90

Gonzo Weekly #389/90
THE STILL UP AGAINST IT ISSUE
www.gonzoweekly.com
In yet another singularly non-standard issue for singularly non-standard times we find out what Ian Andersonb of Jethro Tull fame is doing for the homeless in LA during the pandemic, we muse on Andy T and Thatcher's legacy in Hong Kong, go aboard Spaceship Hawkwind to find out about the possibilities for a socially isolated Hawkfest, Alan collates covid-19 stories from around the world and Mad Iccy has a little chat with Back to the Planet keyboard player and long time Techno Producer Guy ’Geezer’ McAffer. And is there more? You can bet your arse there is...
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive, AND Merrell Fankhauser, and Canterbury sans Frontieres, but no sign of Strange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, although C J Stone, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and Roy Weard, are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for their footwear, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
