Synopsis[]

Art collector Albert Keith finds a painting that his friend Simon Waverly assures him is one mentioned in horror writer H. P. Lovecraft's story "Pickman's Model". "The painting was inspired by Lovecraft's story," Albert suggests.

"Suppose it was the other way around," Simon responds. "Suppose Lovecraft's story was inspired by the painting?"

Meanwhile, model Kay Keith, Albert's ex-wife, is hired to work for the Starry Wisdom Temple, now established in Los Angeles.

The final section of the novel deals with Mark Dixon--the child of Kay and Cthulhu--and the events leading up to end of the world.
