The Reluctant Reading Lamp is a Cursed Artifact found in the Checking Out the Library level of Ghostbusters: The Video Game


Green-shaded brass table reading lamp that turns itself on and off.


c.1959 Celebrated novelist Arthur Houston conceived and conducted research for his new books at his library table, under this lamp, for over thirty years. Severe writer's block gripped him in his sixties and woulden't let go. Houston's psychic frustration channeled to the lamp and resides there now, refusing to let anyone read under its light.

Where to Find ItEdit

In the Field: This lamp is inside the Archives room before reaching the sorting area. Look for it between two microfiche machines on the left.

At the Firehouse: In the basement, sitting on a shelf above Spengler's workbench.
