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.

In August’s issue, Terry Ross looks at the USA’s inept immigration industry in Those huddled masses. In Living in a sitcom, Elizabeth Fournier remembers sharing a house in San Francisco. Thou swell, thou witty, thou sad is the title of John M. Daniel’s article on the death of Lorenz Hart. Lorentz Lossius gets high in Turkey with Kurdish pals. In When is a rat not a rat? Susan Bennett recounts overcoming her distaste for rodents. M.A. Orthofer reviews Michel Houellebecq’s controversial novel Submission in The end of civilization? In Upstaged, Brad Bigelow reviews an unfairly forgotten novel by Jane Mayhall.

We welcome classicist Edith Hamilton and novelist V.S.Naipaul into our exclusive club of Honorary Black Lambs. In Unbeautiful neighborhood, advice columnist Millicent Marshall holds forth on unsightly cables and dusty shrubs. And Professor Khan gives us another of his challenging word puzzles.
