How sad, but what a legacy.
I never knew his actual name beyond the initials. Thanks for posting this. I’d have missed it otherwise.
It’s neat to see all the other things he did, too.
I love how the obituary is in the same font the actual books were.
That grabbed me by all the heartstrings at once.
Let us now praise good producers.
I believe that’s a result of being on the ChooseYourOwnAdventure.com site.
The obituary itself is an image.
I wish I’d had a slightly happier reminder to keep trawling openlibrary.org for old CyoAs. But I do recommend doing so. You can check books out, and the best part is, you can use ctrl-shift-p to browse the pages, so your reading isn’t spoiled by reading the opposite page.
Wrote a little more of a goodbye at sibylmoon.com/in-memory-of-r-a-montgomery/.
