November 23, 2014: To Read More About R. A. Montgomery, Turn To Page 23. Fnord. (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2014-11-23)

Raymond A. Montgomery, creator of the Choose Your Own Adventure series of children's books, passed away on November 9, 2014 (http://www.cyoa.com/pages/r-a-montgomery-1936-2014).

I grew up being frustrated, terrified, and thoroughly entertained by those books, and I'm pleased that kids today are able to enjoy them just as I did. I hope they learn to create flow charts in the process, too.

Montgomery was especially noteworthy for not crediting all the CYOA books to a "house author"; the person who actually wrote the book got credit for it. (Thanks to Rob Kelk for pointing that out; I might have missed it.)
