Black Lamb

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.

An brilliant polymath and largely self-educated, Wells became extremely well-known and popular for his use of scientific information in his many books. His Outline of History remains a wonderful summation, and his novels still pulsate with visionary prescience.
