(1931-    ) US author, co-developer with R A Montgomery of the Choose Your Own Adventure Gamebook sequence comprise of tales in which the reader becomes a kind of protagonist of the tale, being addressed in the second-person singular and actively determining the plot whenever cued to make a choice as to the next stage of the action. The Choose Your Own Adventure series itself – many of whose instalments were written by Montgomery (see his entry for details) – applies these central rules to various simplified scenarios,many of them sf, and seems designed for younger readers and the Young Adult market. The sequence begins with The Cave of Time (1979) and ends with Vampire Invaders (1991). He also contributed four volumes to the unconnected Earth Inspectors sequence, beginning with America: Why Is There an Eye on the Pyramid on the One-Dollar Bill? (1988), [JC]
