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.

Author profile

December 1st, 2002

Bud Gardner was born in 1943 and raised in arid, rural, eastern Washington state. In 1961 he went to the wet, west side of the state for college at U Dub in Seattle, where he earned his BA in English comp and political science, and a law degree. After seven years of criminal defense work in Seattle, and a divorce, he took a “vacation” from the law, bummed around in Mexico, managed a Pioneer Square bar, worked for a while as a private eye, did construction carpentry and some field surveying, and, observing that most folks work too hard for miserable pay, reasonably concluded that it might be appropriate to reconsider the legal profession, in a revised context. Returning to eastern Washington in 1980, he remarried, and he has maintained a general law practice in Okanogan since. He and his wife Connie enjoy their quiet home life in a (remodeled) hundred-year-old farm house surrounded by orchards. Bud likes to fly fish, raises prize-winning dahlias, and dabbles in country music and writing. His Black Lamb column is called Country Lawyer.
