Added the date of Noah's Ark
17th November, 1999

Added notes for No Place For Disgrace.

13th November, 1999

Added an identification of Unknown 23.
Updated the Books page with notes about Hindsight, Dreams and the upcoming retrospective.
Included a list of titles of images in Dreams.

24th October, 1999

Added Prime to the OP page.
Added Knife 5, the fob watch and stamps to the Notes page.
Added Boris Book 1 and Book 2 (images to follow).
Added Calendar 2000.

4th July, 1999

The "pick" image was changed a few days ago to the San Diego sketch;
thanks to Larry Ross for sharing.
I have now updated some of the information sent to me over too long a period.
Too many of the alphabetic pages have changed to make it worth noting them all.
The 1979 calendar page has been added - only 3 images were by Boris.
New images: Discovery of America, Stella.
I finally bit the bullet and decided that Secrets of Synchronicity is the title I'll carry,  The alternative spelling
of Synchronocity I will ignore on the basis that the majority of references are to the other spelling.
Added the missing Gor images to the 1983 calendar.
Removed a number of now-identified images from the Unknown page.

18th April, 1999

Identified Unknown 2 as Slaves of the Empire #5: Corissa the Vestal Virgin.
Fixed the error in the Boris 2 page - invalid image for Chakra (actually Chakra 3).
Added the Boris 4 Autograph card image.
Added Knife 4, Sorceress of Passion, to the Notes page.

10th February, 1999

Fixed errors on the Mirage page.
Reinstated the image for December 1998 calendar.
Added the title for the 1997 calendar cover image.
I have separated the Burroughs and Conan trading card sets from the book covers.
From the Cards page you will get a page with just the cards.
From the Books page you will get a page with the book covers.
Having recently acquired the cards, expanded the information on Panty Raid (OP page),
and added Hatch-Mech, otherwise known as B4.H6 (see the Boris 4 and H pages).

8th February, 1999

Corrected the Red Sonja page and the 1983 Calendar page.
Corrected the text on the Marvel Masterpieces 96 page,
describing the card ordering more accurately (not important, but I like to be clear).
Corrected the image for Conan the Triumphant.

The big news, again thanks to Larry Kinney and Boris himself: many unknown images now identified.
These will be left on the Unknowns page for a while, with the titles added.
This saves me identifying the updated alphabetic pages individually, of which there are so many.
As a consequence of these updates, all the Mirage paintings are now titled.
The 1998 calendar centrepiece has also been identified.

3rd February, 1999

Added the 1983 Fantasy calendar at long lost (thanks to Larry Kinney).
I hope one day to be able to provide the images, but for the moment I have at least titles.

9th January, 1999

Fixed up the images for the 1981 calendar, based on information
received from Mike Lewis in early October last year - sorry about the delay!

6th January, 1999

Updates to the calendars - thanks to Mike Lewis for this information.
1985 Calendar added, previously no information at all.
1989 Calendar reorganised to get the months right, and cover and centrepiece added.

That leaves just the 1983 calendar unknown.

Perit has also been added to the OP page.

7th November, 1998

Updated the Trading Cards page to identify the image on the Hyborian Gates Ancient Gate card.

The Burroughs and Conan pages are now referenced here, and have been updated.
Further books pages are still to be added.
