Vol. XII No. 8 of Dragon Magazine.
Cover Art: While their cleric of Thor stands guard, a group of dwarves hauls out (or hides away) their massive chest of treasure. "These guys," said cover artist Keith Parkinson, indicating the dwarves holding the chest, "are basically 'greed dwarves.'" Entitled "The Big Stash," this painting will soon be available as a print. Keith recently won the coveted 1987 Dark Fantasy award at the World Fantasy Convention in Nashville, for his painting "What do You Mean, We're Lost?" (from the contents page)
