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.

The Small School in session
This year the Weird Weekend, our annual gathering of the strange, the wonderful and the obscure, moves to a new location, the Small School in Hartland, Devon.  My spies inform me that tickets are still available so, if you are near enough to attend, now is the time to book.  Ring 01237431413; from outside UK 0441237431413.  You can also book through our website

This years lectures include:

Richard Freeman holding forth on his adventures in Tasmania.  He led what Winnie-the-Pooh would call an expotition.
Nigel Mortimer: Opening Portals
Nick Wadham: Alien Abductions
Matt Salusbury: Rothschild's Deinotherium Caper
Lee Walker: Urban Legends of Liverpool
Neil Nixon: tba

I take it tba stands for 'to be announced' or else Neil Nixon is possibly playing the tuba.

Ronan Coghlan (that's me) will be supplying two lectures - now there's value for money - Bogus Bibles and a lecture on alleged ancient astronauts.

Silas Hawkins will be doing something, though I'm afraid I don't know what it is.  I think you may safely take it that it doesn't involve juggling or snake-charming.

The Tunnel of Goats will be operating once again.

APRA Books will be exhibiting once again.

A Fortean Quiz will be held.
