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

September 10th, 2002

American science writer Stephen Jay Gould (The Mismeasure of Man, 1981) is born in New York City, 1941.

Stephen Jay Gould, b. September 10, 1941, d. 2002

Gould was one of the first to make paleontology and evolutionary biology available and fascinating to the layman, but his mind is worth following wherever it wanders. He is an immensely thought-provoking, fertile, and graceful writer, whether discoursing on art, baseball, dinosaurs, pandas, or clams.
