Weird Fiction Review #6

I just started to read WFR #6.
i'm wondering about the cover.
On the left side front row, the figure between Miles Davis and Ambrose Bierce is identified as Robert Aickman, but I would swear that is Julio Cortazar. Am I wrong?

You're right. It's a very famous photo of him, too.

I had an idea and Google image searched 'Robert Aickman'. That photo of Cortazar is one of the first results, so I'm assuming that's how the mistake was made.

That is the best cover of anything I have ever seen.

Wow! That's adding insult to injury:
the injury being not including both authors in the collage;
the insult being that of mistaking one for the other.

Thanks for looking into it.

There'd be room for both, but for the life of me I can't fathom what Gene Simmons is doing in there. Or maybe they messed that up too and it's supposed to be Dan Simmons?
