Excellent story, but the ending was too short and confusing. It looks like it was written with a deadline and had to be wrapped up quickly.
Still it's a great piece of work. It had me wondering how much of this may have been real. The main character in the story is an author who has written books about being abducted by aliens and his name is Wiley. Pretty close to Whitley, but I'm sure that was intentional. Coudn't put it down... until the ending anyway.
