The following novel is the Smashwords published edition
I sat nervously in my pj’s in the presence of the gray in a recessed area of the brightly lit circular shaped control room. Amidst all the flashing colored instrumentation and visualization screens of the UFO, I sat wondering––not knowing what was to come next. Me, Brad Anderson, the lead programmer at a small software development firm, unbelievably a victim of an abduction.
The gray sat across from me in what resembled a silver futuristic mushroom-like pedestal and I sat on a similar one. There were several other grays seated around the perimeter at what appeared to be control panels, carrying on various functions. They paid no attention to me.
The gray being who sat across from me had previously communicated with me telepathically but he knew this was an unnatural method for my species so he had just placed a thin silver metallic ribbon around his neck with a small disc attached to it. He had indicated telepathically that this was a translator. During his telepathic communications he had identified himself as Craton, the craft’s commander. Now he majestically waved his hand over the disc and I heard several quick beeps emanate from the disc and instinctively I knew he had activated it.
