    Lord of Light Kindle ´ Lord ofePUB Ð lord pdf, light ebok, Lord of kindle, Lord of Light PDFEPUBI don't even know where to start on this one Roger Zelazny solidified his position on my favorite authors list with Lord of Light It's the best writing of his that I've come across so far The Plot Long story short immortals from Earth set up shop on another world and assumed the guise of Hindu gods Sam aka Buddha Siddhartha Kalkin etc opposes them in each of his lifetimes reviving Buddhism as a tool in his uest The final confrontation doesn't disappointAs other reviewers have said the story is mostly one flashback between two bookend chapters It took a little getting used to The characters of the gods were interesting I'd read books about Lord Agni and the rest I also liked the pray o mat machines and the Accelerationists those who wanted to give humanity advanced technology to speed their spiritual developementAll in all it's sci fi in a fantasy wrapper telling a version of the rise of Buddhism from Hinduism It's one
