And you thought there was no such thing as genuinely alternative publishing?

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.

We are the world's leading publishers of cryptozoology, fortean, and cryptozoology related books with over a hundred titles currently in print. 

But that's not all. The CFZ is a hub for writers, artists , musicians and film makers from all over the world, and so - almost without meaning to, and certainly without planning it - we have published a whole slew of other books on a whole slew of other subjects, fiction and non - fiction as well.
