Martin Gardner — the science writer, maths writer, skeptic and the man who’s book I plagiarised the title of this blog from — has died at the age of 95.
I didn’t know his work as intimately as many others did, so will not say much here. Instead, I suggest you read one of the many wonderful pieces that have been written about him, his life and his work.
• Scientific American has a tribute page to him containing some previously published profiles as well as some obituaries.
• The Guardian has an obit.
• Writers at Scienceblogs.com have written lots of stuff.
