Devin Prouty asked:

Are the gods real in this novel? Do the Helmsmen know about the gods, or do they just see them as some other entity that only seems supernatural to humans? (like the A C Clarke idea, sufficiently advanced technology will seem like magic to less advanced observers.)

Charles I came away with the impression the world of the story was either an alt-Earth or the Earth very far in the future. I assumed the 'gods' were post-humans. In the same way, the Helmsmen were biological AIs.
