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-Drugs Issue

In September’s All-Drugs Issue, John M. Daniel examines a favorite weed in Marijuana mythtique. In My boozy blind dates, Elizabeth Fournier wonders why men think being shitfaced makes them attractive. Toby Tompkins doesn’t take illegal drugs anymore, but in Pharmacopoeia he lists his legal ones. In Escape from pain, Karla Powell names the reason for drug use but advocates stoicism instead. Greg Roberts takes the responsibility for the drug culture squarely on his shoulders in Blame us boomers. The Great Aphorist is M.A. Orthofer’s review of a fascinating book by Pierre Senges. Brad Bigelow reviews Peter Greave’s book about leprosy in Ugly disease, lovely writing; he also reviews a book about light verse by Helen Bevington. Terry Ross hails a marvelous first novel by a seventy-five-year-old author — Susan Altstatt’s Belshangles — in Super début.

We welcome William Carlos Williams and we grudgingly admit Ken Kesey into our gallery of Honorary Black Lambs. Bridge champ Trixie Barkis poses a couple of new card problems. Our recipe of the month is for Creamy Lamb Stew. Advice columnist Millicent Marshall talks about drugs. And Professor Avram Khan submits another tricky word puzzle.
