Cover Art: "Attack of the Taer" is Daniel Horne's way of saying hello, and our way of welcoming him to the roster of DRAGON Magazine cover artists. It seems as though this brave fighter has made his saving throw against stench, but his real problems may be just beginning. (from the contents page)
This issue featured 2 center pull-out sections: GEN CON 19 Preregistration Booklet and a poster, AGENT 13 and the Invisible Empire (by Jeff Butler), as well as the regular ARES Section - 16-page spotlight on SF Gaming.
It also listed the "Gamers' Guide," which was an index of all the advertising in the issue and "TSR Previews," a list of upcoming products from TSR.
