When night falls, or the storm clouds roll in, I just reach for my Pyramid lamp. It isn’t large, only about 5″ at the base – but the shade is attached to a rod that telescopes open to 13″, and the bulb is powerful. Guaranteed to keep the shadows and their resident monsters at bay during late night readings of The Mummy Walks Among Us, Wonder Woman in The Curse of Cleopatra, or the Amelia Peabody series. Best of all, this 1960s/70s lamp pops up every now and then on ebay at reasonable prices, so you can get one too!
