Vigliante, Mary

Entry updated 25 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

Working name of Mary Vigliante Szydlowski (1946-    ), who has also published sf as by Jarl Szydlow; she writes woman-centred tales whose taste for violence has struck from the first a note of ambivalence. Titles include The Ark (1978) as by Jarl Szydlow and the Aftermath Books, a Post-Holocaust sequence comprising The Colony (1979) and The Land (1979). Also as Vigliante she has published two similar tales: Source of Evil (1979) and Worship the Night (1982). Unlike most Feminist work, her novels seemed to express a sense that the oppression of women could be exhilarating. [JC]
