The Miller brothers, Rand and Robyn of Spokane, were unlikely candidates to be the first super stars of the CD-ROM world. They were neither obsessed by computers at an early age nor were they any better than mediocre students in school. They were never pocket protector-wearing nerds, and the churchgoing brothers were certainly never part of the hacker underground. But they shared an appreciation for storytelling and had well-developed imaginations.

Re "Target the Parents, Not Party Platform," Commentary, Aug. 1: I am pleased to see Gov. Pete Wilson interjecting reason into the Republican end of the fevered abortion debate. A genuine concern for life must extend beyond the fetal period, and an opposition to abortion must not ignore simple social policies that could discourage unwanted pregnancies in the first place. It all seems so obvious, and yet our politicians have spent the greater part of this election year deliberately circumventing the obvious in misguided attempts to discredit one another's parties.

'Seamless' start? It's amazing the Peels even got together, let alone made music that has landed them in negotiations with a major record label. The quartet, formed in Seattle and now based in the Bay Area (though they gig around L.A. enough to know Silver Lake from Echo Park), plays churning, vintage garage rock -- but it's a really nice garage. "Where you'd park an '81 Trans Am," bassist Josh Vieu says, when the analogy is suggested.

There was no new techno-thriller in 1995 from the master of the genre, Tom Clancy, who may have been preoccupied with those marital woes reported by the gossip columns. Clancy sells so many books that the gross national product may dip as a result of his absence.

In 1993, "Myst" entranced a worldwide audience with its lush graphics, intriguing story line and accessibility for people who had never played computer games. Created by brothers Robyn and Rand Miller, "Myst" was followed four years later by "Riven," a game in the same mystery and puzzle-solving genre as "Myst," but with even more eye candy. "Myst" sold 5.5 million copies, but "Riven" sold only 4.5 million--mostly because many players found the puzzles too difficult.

When my birthday rolled around this year I stunned the family by actually making a request for a specific present, thus sparing them the annual ordeal of figuring out what to get the man who has everything. What I asked for was Riven, the long-awaited sequel to the revolutionary computer game Myst.
