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 25th, 2002

Russian playwright Anton Chekhov (The Cherry Orchard, 1904) is born in Taganrog, 1860.

Anton Chekhov, b. January 29, 1860, d. 1904

The master of both drama and prose was a genius of the ambivalent resolution of plot, thereby taking a giant step in the creation of the modern play and short story. The plays make superb reading and give endless pleasure on stage, and you can dip into the stories wherever you like and never be disappointed. A giant.
