Description Edit | History

Vol. XI No. 8 of Dragon Magazine.

Cover Art: It was difficult to get Jim Holloway to volunteer information on his cover painting - the fifth one he's done for us. What can you say about the picture? "Uh...um..." Were there any amusing stories behind this picture? (Yes, but we couldn't print them.) Is there anything else you'd like to add? "Gimme a lotta money." There he is, Jim Holloway. (from the contents page)

This issue featured a plethora of articles on AD&D, as well as the return of several old favorites.
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.
