Rebecca and Bill,

In fact, someone skilled at picking apart the data has done so
at great length, namely Thomas E. Bullard, author of the massive
two-volume UFO Abductions: The Measure of a Mystery (1987; a
new, updated version is in the works) as well as numerous papers
and articles in IUR, JUFOS, Magonia, and elsewhere. His next
article appears in the next issue of IUR, where he responds to
the spurious charge that abduction testimony simply mirrors the
concerns of the abduction investigator.

It simply is impossible to discuss the abduction phenomenon
meaningfully without having immersed oneself in Bullard's work.
Bullard is to abduction scholarship what Francis James Child was
to ballad scholarship.
