About the art - We at EG would like to thank the following artists for their contributions to this issue:

Football photos courtesy of the NFL and individual artists listed.

And a special thanks to our freelance artists:

Eric Curry - All department logos, and various photography

Bob Forrest - Price of Technology and CD Multimedia (© 1992 Bob Forrest)

Cliff Spohn - EG interview

And Extra Special thanks to the folks at HBO for allowing the Crypt Keeper to visit the EG offices. As you can see by the pictures, we had a great time.

Um... by the way... We really don't mind the paper-clips, pens, and computer keyboard Mr. Keeper accidently took back in his briefcase, but if you would, ask him to return Juli, our Art Director. She is needed at work and her plants are dying.
