I have a question in mind about the history of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. Most of the books in the series (including the "young readers" spin-offs) have science fiction and fantasy topics.
However, some of the books are in other genres. "Who Killed Harlowe Thrombey" is a mystery; "Deadwood City" is a western; "By Balloon to the Sahara" is a sort of general pulp adventure story. These examples are all from the early Choose Your Own Adventure books, since my question only deals with the early history of the series.
I think that a series, like this one, that is predominantly science fiction & fantasy, should be on topic. However, I wanted to get others' opinions before I asked a detailed question about the development history of the series.
