Vol. XI No. 1 of Dragon Magazine.
Cover Art: For the second issue in a row, we welcome a new artist to the cover of DRAGON Magazine. The name of the painter is Kevin Davies, and the title of the painting is "The Vanquished Cavalier," a scene that somehow manages to be exhilarating and unsettling at the same time. The painting won the Amateur Best of Show award at the 1984 World Fantasy Convention - and now, the next time Kevin enters a contest, he's going to have to do so as a professional.
