“Jeff Gardiner knows his stuff. Somehow, he has been able to jam detailed, incisive discussion about all of Michael Moorcock’s work into one book that’s around 160 pages. But it’s 160 really good pages. You’ll get a crash course in the master’s work, and a huge reading list. So be ready.”
“Gardiner’s guide is something of a restless beast, being accessible and critically appreciative of its subject … he offers academic analysis on the pre-eminent characters of Moorcock’s writing and direct insight on their inter-location through the myriad of books he has written. Interspersed amongst this are insights into Moorcock’s writing process, shared by a writer who clearly trusts and respects his critic.
‘Law of Chaos’ is without doubt the essential Michael Moorcock primer for fans and critics. Any would-be critic or enthusiastic reader should start here. For those uninitiated to the vast pantheon of work produced by ‘the master Storyteller of our time’ as labelled by Angela Carter, would do best to start with those stories and then look to Gardiner’s work as a signpost for further adventures.”
