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.

kotzwinkle.jpegKotzwinkle is sometimes regarded as a fantasy writer, but his stories and novels might be better described as wildly imaginative, a little like Kurt Vonnegut on drugs. His sardonic humor is everywhere on display but does not hide his craftsmanship. A writer to enjoy and to laugh with.

Suggested Reading Novels The Fan Man, 1974. Doctor Rat, 1976. Fata Morgana, 1977. Great World Circus, 1983. Stories Elephant Bangs Train, 1971. The Hot Jazz Trio, 1989. Children’s books The Walter the Farting Dog series, 2001-2007.
