by Whitley Strieber
From October of 1985 to October of 1997, I was in almost constant contact with people who did not appear to be human. In Transformation and Breakthrough, I wrote about the period of relatively formal encounters that ended in 1990. But I have never written about what happened after that. There are two reasons for this. The first is that I couldn't figure out how to do it most usefully. The second is that I didn't feel that I could gain a receptive audience beyond the community of people who have had close encounters, of which there appear to be about a million in the United States.
However, what happened to me stands as a most unusual human experience, and what has happened to all of us as a most valuable one. I got the feeling that there was marvelous knowledge being squandered by arrogant scientists, a frightened and secretive government, clownish media and a public led by all of the snickering and denial into a state of indifference.

How to get past these barriers, and at the same time communicate my new experiences to those of us who are coming face-to-face with the visitors?
A huge challenge, as it turned out, which took me from 1997 until about three years ago to work out. It was at that time, In the autumn of 2003, that I began experimenting with various ways of doing this. I tried various approaches, and finally decided that the best one was to repeat what I had done with Majestic, and write fact-based fiction. But in this case, of course, the facts are even more fantastic than they were with the Roswell Incident.
They are so incredible that I just don't believe that any amount of convincing will help people who haven't had the experience deal with them. More than that, I have a storytelling ability that enables me to communicate subtle, hidden things in fiction.
So I wrote the first few sentences of what became the Grays, about a little boy riding his bicycle on an innocent summer evening, and later coming face-to-face with a totally fantastic unknown.
I've learned a lot about the way the contact experience works, and how it works in the human mind, including how and why we hide it from ourselves. So when people who have had experiences and don't remember it read these chapters, their memories will be triggered by the associations that I have embedded in them. I know quite certainly that this will work, and that it will happen. And it fits one of the central objectives of the mission I have undertaken in my life, which is to help people come into contact with memories from their own lives that are so strange that their minds have buried them.
This will work for close encounter witnesses, too. The book is designed to reconstruct associations that have been broken by fear and by the action of the visitors. While reading and living the emotional journey of the characters, it is my hope that you will discover hidden parts of your own journey that have the same flavor.
Now, I'd like to discuss some of the different types of visitor who appear in the book, and why they are there. I have written about the kinds that I know and the experiences involving them that I've had. I have not written about any forms that I have not personally encountered and--this will surprise you when you read the book--I have not invented any of the different types of communication that are part of the story, or the way the mind changes as contact deepens.
