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.

May in Black Lamb

Volume 13, Number 5 — May 2015

May 1st, 2015

The All-Sex Issue

In May’s All-Sex Issue (July will All-Drugs and September All-Rock ‘n’ Roll), Terry Ross examines society’s fixation on all things sexual in Obsession. In Selfish jerk, Elizabeth Fournier details her blind date with the mayor of a California city. John M. Daniel salutes Cole Porter in Clever, classy, & sassy. In Getting lucky, Toby Tompkins remembers an episode from when he was just seventeen. Lorentz Lossius gives us an atmospheric poem about cruising, In Central Park. In Choose your sex… if you can, we reveal a list of more than 50 “official” gender designations. In commemoration of Memorial Day, Vietnam vet Michael McCusker makes a plea for peace in Recruiting tomorrow’s dead. As usual, we offer a selection of insightful book reviews.

And, as always, our regular departments: our Honorary Black Lambs from the world of literature, our delicious lamb recipe, our incomparable bridge columnist Trixie Barkis, and our word puzzle master, Dr. Khan.•
