Martin Gardner Tribute in MAA FOCUS

The following articles give readers a chance to appreciate what an amazing thing Martin did in writing his column. Note that while he was doing that, he was writing other books and articles and carrying on a war against pseudoscience and other nonsense. Besides that, he carried on correspondences and controversies with an amazing group of people. Martin's heritage goes beyond essays and books; he left a community carrying things forward and delighting in it all as they do so. -Peter Renz
