Daniel Horne has produced interior and cover illustrations for role-playing game books since 1986. In addition to several covers for Dragon and Dungeon magazine, Horne illustrated the covers of several Dungeons & Dragons books including Talons of Night (1987), The Shattered Statue (1987), Fate of Istus (1989), Dark and Hidden Ways (1990), and the World Builder's Guidebook (1996). Horne also did role-playing game work for Iron Crown Enterprises, West End Games, Alderac Entertainment Group, and Troll Lord Games.
