Sahl wrote the first book that is definitely horary, so he's well worth the effort. Get the Holden translation, not Dykes' pairing with Ma'shallah.

Of the others I have several and my opinions on them are:

Forget Marc Edmund Jones
Forget March and McEvers

Horary Astrology by Anthony Louis was my very first it's not bad for a first - you might be beyond it by now

Olivia Barclay is of historical importance but is now overtaken by better understanding of Horary - but she made the first attempt to make Lilly accessible and produce something of a commentary. So if you want it, it's one of the very first books in the Traditional revival

Barbara Dunn succeed Barclay as Principal of the Qualified Horary Practioners course. I found her book Horary Astrology Re-examined awkward to read because there's a wealth of information from a whole variety or authors but at times it's difficult to know where it's going and the style isn't good. Nevertheless I've grown to use it as a reference.

Lee Lehman is quite good to read in conjunction with Frawley, Very readable but not sure it's exactly on the money. Worth considering though.

Sue Ward's web site has quite a few articles and she is one of the leading Horary Practioners. I actually got her to join Aeclectic but sadly she didn't stay for long.

She has two sites:

The latter has a series of articles, many of them free that you can download and she's now posted a couple of videos, which as yet I've not seen. But will download in the next couple of minutes. She used to publish a downloadable magazine called the Traditional Journal but it only lasted a few issues (all of which I have). I'm not sure if it's still available. (it's not free but it's good).
