The “Events Preceding the Helvetican Renaissance”, by John Kessel, is a story about gods in a very human post-trans-human world of science fiction flavoured fantasy. The gods may or may not be dead, they may or may not be gods, and it may or may not be good to kill them, but in any case they and their creation story still have a very very firm grasp on the universe of this science fiction spy.
