At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

On This Day in Weird, April 4....

1948: Future best-selling author Dan Simmons is born in Peoria, Illinois. His many macabre novels include The Abominable, featuring a search for missing climbers and the yeti on Mount Everest.

1968: A sniper's bullet kills Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee. Despite a distinctly peculiar guilty plea from "lone assassin" James Earl Ray, evidence of conspiracy proliferates, spawning several books on the case...including one by Yours Truly.
