Subject: Mortellaro Follows Up On Abduction Conference

Letter by Jim Mortellaro. Source: The Village Voice,


April 7 I posted Austin Bunn's article on the abduction
conference. See:


or the original Village Voice version at





Out of this World

As a possible alien abductee, I read Austin Bunn's "The
Alienist: Artist Brings UFO Abduction Home to New York" [*April
7-13] with great interest.

Like many of the people in Bunn's article, I can tell you that
living with strange memories is no fun. There are a number of
stages in the abduction phenomenon which assault the mind. I
have been examined by psychiatrists and found to be highly
stressed, but otherwise in good mental health. I have a few
phobias, but who doesn't?

I go through stages of disbelief and belief, supplanted from
time to time with the thought that maybe I am crazy. Which is
why I decided to be examined. As for the memories, they are
dreamlike snippets, which I recall vividly from more than 50
years ago. And I almost never recall dreams. So why do I
remember these? And why are they so vivid? Why do I have the
belief that they are memories of real events?

Clearly, UFO counselor Budd Hopkins, the subject of Bunn's
article, helps his groups with his kindness and his thorough
knowledge of the subject. I am considering utilizing his
services, but before doing so, I wish to recall as much as I
possibly can by myself.
