The Latest From Regan

The latest from the CFZ's always-reliable Oregon-rep, Regan Lee:

My new Trickster's Realm column is up for Tim Binnall's site: Seeing the Virgin: Tricksters Take it to the People, and I also have a new article at UFO Digest: My Teacher Was Abducted By Aliens: Preparation for Fake Disclosure? Speaking of the BVM, you can download a free PDF of collected articles by yours truly, and a great article on the image of the Virgin in a tree by richelle hawks.

Ken & Cryptids

Good mate Ken Gerhard (author of the book, Big Bird!; all-round cryptozoological researcher and investigator; and a CFZ Texas rep) is coming up to stay with me and Dana this weekend, as he'll be speaking at the regular Sunday meeting of the Dallas-Fort Worth Mutual UFO Network group.

Ken will be speaking about a range of crypto-topics, including his research into the so-called "Texas Chupacabras" - those, weird hairless whatsits. You know the ones I mean! And, no doubt, he'll be getting into his research into Mothman-like entities, too.

You can find a fascinating new article on so-called "Ghost Animals" that has been written by our Oklahoma representative, Melissa Miller.

Melissa explains: "This post isn't about Oklahoma, for once; it's about our close neighbor Missouri, where I've spent a while wandering around the wilderness. To make a long story short, I'll skip the part about the hippy commune and almost drowning in a cave (that's the 'very close to losing' part; would also like to point out that said cave is connected to a sinkhole called Devil's Well, if you're one of those who is interested in strange happenings at 'devil' places) and go straight to what I learned about the state's strange critters. In my inquiries into local folklore I was surprised to discover that a lot of ghost stories in Missouri revolve around animals. If a ghost animal isn't the definition of Fortean Zoology, I don't know what is."

And, if that has caught your attention, here's the rest of Melissa's post.

Texas CFZ rep Naomi West recently visited Loch Ness and - as her report shows - she had a fun, cool time. Loch Ness is a truly excellent place to visit, and it has been far too long since I last visited Scotland's most mysterious body of water. Time to rectify things, methinks...
