Description Lord of Light (1967) is an epic science fiction/fantasy novel by Roger Zelazny. It was awarded the 1968 Hugo Award for Best Novel, and nominated for a Nebula Award in the same category.
The essence of the story concerns a group of colonists from Earth who travel to a distant planet and become like gods to the indigenous population, whose society is set up in imitation of Hinduism and ancient India. Reincarnation becomes possible due to the technical ability of the Earthmen, and the population pay fealty, using "pray machines," which resemble Las Vegas slot machines. One of the Earthmen — Sam, to use his colloquial name — becomes dissatisfied with the situation, and tries to lead the local population in revolt by a number of methods.
