Montgomery, R A

Tagged: Author

(1936-2014) US editor and author who also wrote as by Robert Mountain, first known for his contributions to the Choose Your Own Adventure sequence of non-computer-based Hypertext tales for the Young Adult market [see Checklist]; as an editor at Vermont Crossroads Press he published the first volume by Ed Packard under the series title The Adventures of You and wrote the second himself as by Robert Mountain, subsequently taking the concept to Bantam Books. Montgomery later wrote a more conventional series, the Trio: Rebels in the New World sequence beginning with Trio #1: Traitors from Within (1990) and ending with Trio #6: Deadly Encounter (1990), in which fairly mild Military SF stories are embedded into the usual Post-Holocaust environment, with World War Three still a vivid memory.
