  Boris Vallejo 2000 Fantasy CalendarCover: Gem of Bul'cug: Kala's Tale

The rider is Merkun, the girl is Queen Kala, and the guy with the purple aura-hands is Gilsine. The basic gist of the calendar is that the magician has been wounded in battle. His companions are telling him stories in an attempt to "guide his spirit back to his body". This year, Philip José Farmer has been replaced by C.J.Henderson as writer of th commentaries.

I would guess that Boris was quite busy during 1998 because seven of the 13 images consist of reused, or reworked, paintings from the previous few years.
