Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

Franklin’s life was astonishing. As scientist, inventor, publisher, statesman, patriot, and writer, he bestrode the budding United States in a time of amazing men. His Autogiobrapy, rich in valuable advice and common sense, is in a select category among books, along with Montaigne and Pascal.

Suggested Reading Books Poor Richard’s Almanack, 1732. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, 1791.
