A Time When was published to mark Anne McCaffrey's appearance as Guest of Honor at Boskone 12 in February 1975. The story in A Time When became the first part of her book The White Dragon (Ballantine), not yet published at the time of this book. A Time When contains interior illustrations by Bonnie Dalzell, and the "Dragondex," a concordance distilled from the previous two Dragon books, Dragonflight and Dragonquest, by Wendy Glasser.
