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.

Her popularity was aided by the superb film versions of several of her fictions, most notably Rebecca in 1940, and later Jamaica Inn, The Birds, and Don’t Look Now. Her gift for suspense will insure her popularity in future generations.
