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.

The All-Rock ‘n’ Roll Issue

In our combined November-December Issue, the All-Rock ‘n’ Roll Issue, Terry Ross looks back on his patchy rock ‘n’ roll history. In Rise up! Greg Roberts urges people to abandon what he calls “garbage music.” Susan Bennett remembers her attendance at Woodstock in I was there, really. In Between a rock and a blue moon John M. Daniel looks at rock ‘n’ roll and what came before it. Toby Tompkins confesses to having been a nascent folk-rocker in Backbeat. In Feeling, Rochelle Singer contributes another letter from Tel Aviv. We round out our articles with a collection of book reviews, some about rock ‘n’ roll, some not.

We welcome science writer Lewis Thomas and super-critic Jacques Barzun into our star-studded gallery of Honorary Black Lambs. Bridge champ Trixie Barkis poses some new card problems. Our lamb recipe of the month is for an intriguing Lamb Salad. Advice columnist Millicent Marshall once again answers readers’ questions. And Professor Avram Khan weighs in with another difficult word puzzle.
