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.

Map of West Virginia
In describing West Virginia as a "window area" where strange things break into our reality, John Keel knew what he was talking about.  Take the TNT area, the very area where Mothman made his appearances.  This was not the only creature to appear at this location.  For example, three people were chased on one occasion from the area by an unclearly discerned apparition, humanoid and large, colored white.  Then in 1973 persons in a car noticed a figure gliding alongside them.  Its hair was shaggy, its head was huge and it did not appear to have wings.  It managed to keep up with the car.
Rosemary Ellen Guiley in her Monsters of West Virginia (2012) claims to have experienced strange phenomena in the Point Pleasant area.  Among other things she speaks of "odd diplacements of time", which may have something to do with the area being something of an interdimensional portal.
