  • Creator Breakdown: St. Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman paints the Church more cynically, reflecting Miller's having become disenchanted with Catholicism over the years. It doesn't help that he committed suicide before the book was planned to be published.
  • Technology Marches On: At one point, Abbot Zerchi turns off a television with such anger that he breaks the knob off. Possibly justified in that this occurs almost 1800 years in the future, after technology has re-emerged.
