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

March 27th, 2002

American novelist Rebecca Brown (The Children’s Crusade, 1989) is born in Seattle in 1956.

Rebecca Brown, b. March 27, 1956

brownrebeccacolor3Brown’s reputation has been made in a small circle of gay and lesbian writers and readers, but she deserves a wider audience. Her fictions are beautifully and evocatively written and are not tainted by special pleading. They are literature, pure and simple, not lesbian literature.

Suggested Reading Books The Haunted House, 1984 and 2007. The Children’s Crusade, 1989. Annie Oakley’s Girl, 1993. The Gifts of the Body, 1995. What Keeps Me Here, 1996. The End of Youth, 2003. The Last Time I Saw You, 2006.
