Stephen J. Cannell: Everybody makes such a big deal about Aaron Spelling, but few people seem to know about the influence of Stephen J. Cannell, who has been behind (either producing or writing) such quality television programming as Baretta, The A-Team, 21 Jump Street, Silk Stalkings, and that Lorenzo Llamas vehicle, Renegade. His latest novel, King Con, about a con artist and an assistant attorney general who need to pull the ultimate con on a Jersey mobster, is already slated to become a movie starring John Travolta. Cannell reads from King Con tonight at 8:00 p.m. at Books & Books (296 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). Admission is free. Call 442-4408. (JO)

Florida Marlins: The prediction for San Francisco in spring training was that they'd be mediocre, maybe. That they'd definitely not be able to compete in the National League West against the powerhouse Dodgers, Rockies, and Padres. Not! The Giants have surprised everybody by assembling a solid and productive team that leads the West division. And what was the prediction for the Marlins? That their off-season spending spree would finally enable them to compete with the game's elite teams -- including the Atlanta Braves. Well, some predictions come true. The white-hot fish own the second-best record in all baseball and are looking like a lock for a spot in the playoffs. The Marlins and Giants meet tonight at 7:05 and tomorrow at 1:35 p.m. at Pro Player Stadium (2269 NW 199th St.). Tickets range from $2-$25. Call 930-7800. (RAP)

Epar: The New Theater (65 Almeria Ave., Coral Gables) presents its second annual New Plays Project, beginning with Akropolis Acting Company's world premiere production of Ricky J. Martinez's .Epar. With dialogue of broken poetry and a barrage of multimedia imagery, the play is described as "the culmination of an epoch of intense manifestations for three women sharing the same thorn," which pretty much means they are going crazy over the same man. Tickets cost $10 and $15. Performances run tonight through Thursday, June 5, at 7:30 and Friday, June 6, through Sunday, June 8, at 8:00 p.m. Call 445-5300. (GC)

Lina Binkele: The work of self-taught Colombian artist Lina Binkele exudes a passion for horses that goes beyond that of even the most fervent equestrian. The horses she depicts in sculpture, oil paintings, and drawings evoke real horses in suspended animation. Drawing on a background in anthropology and a vast knowledge of equine breeds, Binkele imbues her work with a realism that allows her to convey through art the impact of horses on human history. An exhibition of Binkele's works entitled "Sketches, Fragments, and Games" is on view at Santander Gallery (1401 Brickell Ave.) through July 15. Admission is free. The gallery is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Call 446-5578. (GC)
