Chooseco, publisher of the world-famous interactive children’s book series Choose Your Own Adventure(R) announces the release of the scariest title ever written for the series — #185 Escape from the Haunted Warehouse by Anson Montgomery — April 15, 2015.

“This book kept me up at night,” recalls Montgomery. “My research took me through some of the most horrific murders, unsolved crimes, and haunted places on record.”

Chooseco, publisher of the interactive book series Choose Your Own Adventure® announces the release of a very special title - #185 Escape from the Haunted Warehouse by Anson Montgomery - on April 15th. The book was announced in 1997 as the final entry in the initial publication of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. It was subsequently described as “the scariest Choose book ever written.” Somewhat mysteriously, the title was never actually put into print.

Scanning through the Choose Your Own Adventure archival libraries, the manuscript resurfaced. Montgomery reworked the title for Spring 2015 publication, 18 years after it was first announced.

"This book is a legend among the Choose Your Own Adventure fandom and rumors have always swirled online amongst collectors, but almost no one claimed to have even read it,” says Associate Publisher Melissa Bounty. “Working with Anson, it was clear that the book deserved to see the light of day—it’s very well-written, and much scarier than other Choose Your Own Adventure titles.”

“Escape from the Haunted Warehouse” follows YOU during a summer job at an eccentric, spooky warehouse on the edge of town. Working the night shift in an eerie building complex, you maneuver pallets of movie props, old costumes, and strangely labeled boxes through uninhabited hallways.

“This book kept me up at night,” recalls Montgomery. “My research took me through some of the most horrific murders, unsolved crimes, and haunted places on record.”

As you, the reader, weave your way through the storylines, “you” ultimately confront a number of unfortunate and painful deaths. You encounter the torturing ghost of Countess Elizabeth Báthory, a famous murderer from the late 1500’s, a bloodthirsty wolfhound, a “Wild Hunt” in which YOU become the prey, along with a number of other horrifying characters from history's darkest corners.

In other words, it's not your average summer job. And after one particularly scary night, you begin to wonder if it's also your last.
