Martin Gardner has died

Just saw this news. He was a marvelous writer; I've read a great many of his books -- the ones that come first to my mind are his Alice and Snark annotations, but there are so many others -- Aha, Gotcha!, which I read and reread as a child; his other annotations of poems, including "Casey at the Bat"; many collections of his essays; his wonderful book The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener; and others, too.
