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.

A Week in Literary History

January 8th, 2002

English novelist and mystery writer Wilkie Collins (The Moonstone, 1868) is born in London in 1824.

Wilkie Collins, b. January 8, 1824, d. 1889

In his lifetime Collins, like his friend Charles Dickens, was a very busy writer, accounting for 27 novels, more than 50 short stories, two dozen plays, and more than a hundred non-fiction pieces. Today he is remembered for just two books, but they are gems, pioneers of the modern mystery novel.

Suggested Reading Novels The Woman in White, 1860. The Moonstone, 1868.
