Note: Some websites incorrectly list this stories title as "Hermes' Horn"


WARNING: If you own ANY copy of "Lamps on the Brow" or are going to purchase a copy - DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK - IT IS VERY FRAGILE - if you open the pages more than Sixty (60) Degrees apart the spine will break - or even worse the pages will break away from the spine and pop out of the book. I now have a pile of loose pages and a completely worthless book. I give this warning because I know FOR SURE that I am not the only one this has happened to. If you try to read this book the spine will break - this is a sure thing. 

Synopsis ~

Lady Olivia Farrington is bequeathed an unbelievable inheritance, a large section of the old royal hunting grounds. As she peruses the grounds, she is haunted by both an evil citizen Sir Lucas Corbin and the sounds of a horn. It is said that the horn belongs to Herne, The Hunter. A very old legend of the guardian of the woods and all that live within.
