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.

coward.pngThe quintessence of suavity and sophistication, Coward is impossible to emulate. His wonderful plays will live forever on stage, long after the world his characters inhabited has disappeared, if it hasn’t already. And his memoirs and diaries, not to be missed, reveal a man of deep feeling, intelligence, and perspicacity.
