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



On This Day in Weird, December 1...

1887: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional "private consulting detective" Sherlock Holmes appears in print for the first time, subsequently outliving his creator and taking on a literary life of his own, including multiple clashes with Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, the Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, rampaging Martian invaders, and London's elusive real-life Jack the Ripper.
