    • A baffling and bizarrely dated (the protagonist is a gay man whose misogyny is taken as a natural outgrowth of his sexuality, and who must be "cured" if he is to transcend his mental limits) sf novel, out of print and rarely mentioned. Nowhere near as compelling as the novels to either side of it in Russ's body of work: the gripping survival narrative Picnic on Paradise and the unassailable masterpiece The Female Man. For Russ completists only.


    • I interrupted my memorial reading of Castle in the Air (which, truth be told, wasn't grabbing me very much yet) to sneak a peek at And Chaos Died, Joanna Russ's first novel which I'd never read, after dreading news of her death all day yesterday and finally hearing it. I wound up ditching Castle entirely and finishing Chaos of an evening, which should tell you something about Russ's narrative power, which was inherent even in this, her first, deeply flawed novel. If Le Guin's voice is often stat [...]


    • There was a moment in the 70s of experimental science fiction, and And Chaos Died fits into it. It's a strange way for a novel to become dated--there was a time when our science fiction was weirder and more experimental than it is now. The book that comes to mind in terms of a similar experimental style is Witting's Les Guérillères (although that one is even weirder).And Chaos Died expresses in form as well as content the experiences of a man who crash-lands on a planet of psionic humans and s [...]


    • This is classic Joanna Russ. I've mentioned her complex, often overwhelmingly dense prose before, and "And Chaos Died" is the epitome of that style. The opening of the story finds a ship crash-landed on a planet where everyone has the powers of telekinesis, teleportation, and telepathy. The rest of the book is an attempt to convey the experience of telepathy and telekinesis as a normal human would comprehend it. It's an insane goal. And somehow she succeeds. The book is crazy hard to follow, one [...]


    • Really wavers between three and four stars. Some really problematic stuff. For example a main character who seems to be 'cured' of his homosexuality, one moment he's not into women and then bam he leaves that behind and the novel never goes back to it - one of those assumptions that probably had a lot of strength at the time and now is abhorrent, laid next to real criticism of the 70s society Russ was writing in. She didn't stay with this view, her own ideas changed as society in general changed [...]


    • I sometimes enjoy novels for which plot has lesser importance, whether explorations of milieu or character studies. But they need some kind of plot at least, or something compelling enough to make up for lack of a plot. Somehow I made it over a third the way through this, all the while expecting a plot of some sort to kick in, or even for one of the characters to finally express some kind of motivation or compelling characteristic--or do to something, anything, to get me to give a shit.Nope.I th [...]


    • Man, what a disappointment. I gave up at page 65 after spending all those pages feeling as though I was in the SF equivalent of LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD. You know, characters you don't care about at all having scenes where something random but arch occurs for inexplicable resaons. I know Joanna Russ was an important and influential writer so I'll try another one or two books. But this was plain bad, it seemed to me. All the hoopla seems possibly a case of the emperor's new clothes.


    • Russ' first, a thoughtful and provocative garble with high aims, dizzying and adept. Thanks, Emilie, for a very elucidating Delany review that gives a little more conceptual form to Russ' very-alive brand of chaos here.


    • The greatest novel by my favorite woman science fiction novelist. Written in a very artful and complex prose style, sort of a cross between Virginia Woolf and Lawrence Durrell writing of a future Earth buried under teeming cities.


    • Oh, I so do love vintage science fiction covers. Bastei Lübbe really had a knack for them in the '70ies and '80ies.



    • This was quite hard going in some parts, and got the better of me on occasions. Its very trippy, a critique of peoples lack of integration with nature and others. And you'd be hard pushed to find a better sense of what being telepathic might feel like. I enjoyed the female man much more though, and both have a touch of something like Vian (Froth on the Daydream) or Queneau (Zazie).


    • And Chaos Died (1970) tells from a (homosexual) male viewpoint the experiences of a man forced by the psychically transformed human inhabitants of a planet on which he has crashlanded to endure the rewriting of his psychic nature as he perilously acquires Psi Powers. His rediscovery of Earth in the latter part of the book is to Satirical effect.


    • I can't remember the plot here. Time-traveling aliens crash-land on earth in the distant future? The prose is a poetic stream of consciousness that succeeds, in my opinion, in emulating time-travel and evokes the spirit of an unknown world seen through new eyes. It's been more than a decade since I read it but I remember it warmly.


    • This book is delightfully indecipherable. The story shifts and flows and jumps and one is always straining to follow the extra-human experiences of the main character. Reading this book demands concentration and requires a bit of a mind-stretch. I also really enjoyed its vision of our future. Bizarre and yet reflecting a truth about the human condition that makes it seem possible.


    • Worth reading once, but I wouldn't recommend.Although, it's a sci fi book written in 1970 that still comes off as completely original, and that's hard to pull off. I like seeing things from new perspectives.
