The novel is more-or-less ScienceFiction, but relies heavily on {{Fantasy}} tropes. Zelazny's follow-up novel, ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'', is almost exactly the opposite, a {{Fantasy}} (with [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian Gods]]) full of ScienceFiction tropes. Though unrelated, the two works are often considered companion pieces. ''Lord of Light'' remains one of Zelazny's most popular and respected works. It also inspired a song by {{Hawkwind}}.

* CorruptChurch: When one goes to apply for reincarnation, how much money one has offered to the various temples is taken into account when determining how one reincarnates. Automated "pray-o-mats" are set up to receive these offerings. Sam fills them with slugs, purely for laughs.
