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, January 1...

1914: Author and critic Ambrose Bierce last seen alive in Chihuahua, Mexico, sparking controversy over his continued life or death that continues to the present day. His grimly realistic short stories describing war, sometimes verging on the otherworldly, include "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," "A Horseman in the Sky," "One of the Missing," and "Chickamauga." According to Milton Subotsky, Bierce helped pioneer the psychological horror story. Another of his famous works is the is the much-quoted Devil's Dictionary, originally an occasional newspaper item, first published in book form in 1906 as The Cynic's Word Book. In life, Bierce was also known for the motto, "Nothing matters."
