Reference to Coye and Pickman's Model (1974)

From Jimster's Collection to which he notes: There is an interesting note on the bottom of the back flap that reads "Fantasy fans will note that with the cover of FAR BELOW (Lee Brown) Coye has duplicated one of Pickman's masterpieces"...with an additional note to refer to HPL's "PICKMAN'S MODEL" of course.
Chrispy thinks that they are simply teasing. From Pickman's Model, "It was the technique, Eliot- the cursed, the impious, the unnatural technique! "
Jimster reports the table of contents which is chocked full of terrible things ...
Stories are lost gems that (until then) hadn't seen reprinting in book form. And they are....
