Mont Babel explores the prickly edges of Science and Religion as Henderson's protagonist, Professor Jim Benedict, is unexpectedly invited by his estranged son, Tom, to meet a beautiful geologist, Iris, famous in the ufology scene since her childhood close encounter "experience". In his precarious efforts to navigate this father—son reconciliation, Benedict reluctantly contemplates the possibility of alien visitations through conversations with Iris who shares her impressions of the extraterrestrial visitors as noninterfering, discreet/discrete masters of "existential decorum". As the young scientists, Tom and Iris, challenge Professor Benedict's "literature and epistemology" worldview, in their common quest for knowledge, they scale philosophical as well as geological heights, the Stratosphere of Las Vegas, and plummet into sinkholes, both emotional and volcanic. An intellectual tour de force worthy of Umberto Eco, this novella will fascinate the reader with its dazzling bricolage of poetry, philosophy, ufology lore, and esoteric histories of Quebec.
