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

October 15th, 2002

The inimitable English writer P.G. (Pelham Grenville) Wodehouse, creator of Psmith and Jeeves, is born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881.

P.G. Wodehouse, b. October 15, 1881, d. 1975

wodehouse.pngNo less an authority than Evelyn Waugh (see below) famously said of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, “Mr Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Almost all of Wodehouse’s ninety-six books sold well and a great many are still in print, often in collections. Absolutely imperishable!

Suggested reading The Blandings Castle stories, the Drones Club stories, the Jeeves and Wooster stories, the Psmith stories, The Uncle Fred stories, the Ukridge stories.
