Series: The Gregg Press science fiction series. Hardcover: 189 pages. And Chaos Died is by far not only stylistically but also thematically the most challenging science fiction work I've ever read. It takes a while to figure out the tenants of Russ' utopia let alone the actual sequence of events of the "plot" or the exact meaning of the "actions. Everything starts to come together in the last third when the Earth sequence can be compared with the utopic society.

And Chaos Died is a strange, psychedelic book that, in many ways, doesn’t age well. And Chaos Died is definitively New Wave SF, concerned as it is with psychic phenomena, mind-bending imagery, nearly impenetrable-but beautiful-prose and an experimental sensibility. It’s not an easy book; in fact, after the of The Adventures of Alyx, it feels in some ways like a book written by a completely different person.

And Chaos Died (1970) is a science fiction novel by American writer Joanna Russ, perhaps the genre's best-known feminist author. Its setting is a dystopian projection of modern society, in which Earth's population has continued to grow, with the effects somewhat mitigated by advanced technology. The novel was nominated for, but did not win, the 1970 Nebula Award. James Blish praised the novel, saying "The totality is impressive not only for its inventiveness and the brilliance of its technique, but because the fantastic central assumption has been used to tell you real things about the real human psyche. Modern readers have been less welcoming, though: Brit Mandelo, writing for To. om, called And Chaos Died "a strange, psychedelic book that
