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.

Stevenson led an adventurous life and managed to work most of his major adventures and concerns into his fiction. For a while after his death, he was relegated to the minor ranks, but his reputation has steadily revived, and his popularity has never waned. He is a fluent, lively, and ambitious writer, and his works have been translated far more widely than his contemporaries Poe, Dickens, and Wilde.
