Roger Zelazny is an author who must be read, and _Lord of Light_ is one of his great works. Zelazny is fascinated both with the gods of different religious systems, and with the line between technology and godhood. In _Lord of Light_, Zelazny explores the Hindu pantheon. A far future human civilization has used technology to tame a harsh world and strong individuals have taken on attributes of gods. Zelazny's is a poetic writer, carefully choosing words and creating strong, memorable images. _Creatures of Light and Darkness_ is another book written by Zelazny about the same time as _Lord of Light_. _Creatures of Light and Darkness_ uses the Egyptian pantheon, and is a lovely, short 100 page book, where Zelazny masterfully experiments with the form of storytelling. The end result is nearly as much poetry as prose. Finally, the _Amber_ series explores the intrigues of a family of gods through ten volumes.
