** Roger Zelazny's "Lord of Light" (novel, fantasy)

Human colony on an extra-Sol world - built according to Indian mythology.

In spite of some sci-fi hand-waving, I think it's best classified as fantasy.

Caution: If you are a devout Hindu, you will very likely find it blasphemous. If you are from South Asia or Indo China, don't be surprised it you find a certain disconnect - apart from a few spelling mistakes, familiar mythological characters behave partly in familiar way & then suddenly in completely unfamiliar way. If you are from elsewhere, extensive references to unfamiliar imagery might make a somewhat tedious reading.
