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.

A great one-book author, Emily Brontë originally published Wuthering Heights under the name Ellis Bell in 1847 as the first two volumes of a three-volume set, the third volume being her sister Anne’s Agnes Grey. Three years later, eldest sister Charlotte edited and published Emily’s classic under her sister’s real name, and it has enchanted (and bewitched) readers ever since.

Suggested Reading Novel Wuthering Heights, 1847.
