Perhaps this index of Dragon articles might be of a little help.

To find all Dark Sun monsters (original and converted) from TSR, WotC, The Burnt World of Athas and other sources see Echohawk's Complete D&D Monster Index (September 2008). Echohawk has been compiling a complete set of D&D monsters for the Creature Catalog team and his index lets you know where each Dark Sun (or non-DS) monster can be found.
