Here is a WWW site which contains almost the same information:


------------------------------ Subject: [6-2] Books Date: 08/23/1997 (1) From the WWW site <URL:>: There is a book called "Myst Official Game Secrets Hint Book" from Broderbund Software. It contains hints, tips and strategies to solve puzzles, and includes maps, screen shots, a walkthrough, exclusive overhead views, and background on the story. Check out the web site for ordering information. (2) Myst: The Book of Atrus A journey beyond Myst, you will read about how Atrus, the son of Gehn, learns "The Art", the skill of writing that links to others Ages. Worlds preceding Myst are explored, and the story ends where the game starts. Cyan has made this book, the first in the Myst series, available for your perusal at this Web site: <URL:> Doug Ingram has a review of this excellent reading material, please refer to the section on "Hints". (Edited) From: Newsgroups: Subject: Re: Myst: A 5th World? More info! Date: Mon, 19 Feb 96 09:14:15 +500 "First off, any Myst fan should really check out the Book of Atrus novel. Very well written, great story, and it fills in a lot of the background to what happens in the game, as well as offering many a tantalizing hint to the plot of "Myst II". You'll also find out all about the 5th World of Ghen (seen in the calendar). Zach" (3) Myst: The Book of Ti'ana Cyan released this new book, the second of the three-book series, on October 24 and is offering a promotional package. It describes the events about Anna's (later known as Ti'ana) life and her travels to D'ni as the first explorer. <URL:>

Find out more about this book and an excerpt from Cyan's Web site: <URL:> (4) Myst: The Book of D'ni The third book of the series is about to be released in Fall 1997, and is published by Hyperion Books. The story should include Atrus, but at what point in the timeline is not known yet. Check out the following WWW site for a preview of the novel: <URL:> (5) From Myst to Riven: the Creations and Inspirations (Edited) From: Richard A. Watson <> To: Riven List <> Subject: Re: New Subject- Conceptual work Date: Sat, 2 Aug 97 16:37:56 -0700 "Actually, Hyperion (the publisher of the Myst novels) is counting on a lot of people wanting this information. They've made a coffee table book called "From Myst to Riven: the Creations and Inspirations", by Richard Kadrey. It's due out this fall (possibly October 13). It's packed with hi-res renderings, original design drawings, and detailed explanations of almost every aspect of the development of Riven. It's even got a section on the D'ni language, for those of you who are interested. :)" Meanwhile, get the first two books, especially if you are interested in the history of the D'ni and the worlds they created. They are a good read, as I have experienced myself. ------------------------------
Subject: [6-3] Myst Audio Soundtrack Date: 05/23/1997 (Quite empty) As someone noted in c.s.i.p.g.a., this redbook audio compact disc (CD) is a good souvenir for those who have played Myst.

DeForest (edited): "Actually, a number of the images in the calendar are "custom made". Because all the screen shots for Myst are rendered from 3-D models, it's *real* easy to change the position of the camera, change the position of the sun and re-render a new image. (My personal favorite is looking down at Stoneship from above the telescope.)" ------------------------------
