Synopsis: The tradition of a publication based on the Gathering for Gardner continues with this new carefully selected and edited collection in which Martin Gardner and friends inspire and entertain. The contributors to this volume---virtually a list of Who's Who in the World of Puzzles---trace their inspiration to Martin Gardner's puzzle column in Scientific American and to his contributions to the world of recreational mathematics. Tribute to a Mathemagician contains an author index for the two previous books in the collection of books based on the Gatherings for Gardner. Sample puzzles and games include: - Tripos - Black Jack - Chinese ceramic puzzle vessels - Paper folding - Mongolian interlocking puzzles - Rolling block puzzles - Sliding puzzles - Cryptic crosswords - The Panex puzzle - Polyonimo puzzles - and more

Review: " ""There is something in the book for mathematicians from high school level and up ... Highly Recommended."" -Warren Atkins, The Australian Mathematical Society Gazette, December 2002
""With its rich diversity of material, this book could be used to challenge students from ages 10 to 100."" -Mathematics Teacher, July 2003
""This volume is a tribute to the human ingenuity that creates new and tantalizing conundrums, drawing on interesting mathematics and generating challenging unsolved problems."" -E.J. Barbaeu, Mathematiacl Reviews, July 2003
""This attractive, advanced sampling introduces recent developments and some key personalities and significant browsing for the teacher, with potential to spark and nurture student growth."" -Harold Don Allen, Mathematics Teacher, September 2005
""The ingenuity and depth of mathematics represented in this collection is impressive."" -E.J. Barbeau, Mathematiacl Reviews, March 2005
""This is a wonderful book of puzzles and other pieces of recreational mathematics..."" -EMS Newsletter, June 2005
"". . . even well-known puzzles retain their power, as was made clear again and again last month at the seventh ""Gathering for Gardner."" These conferences of mathematicians, puzzlers, game-players and magicians at the Ritz-Carlton here began as personal tributes to Martin Gardner, Scientific American's legendary Mathematical Games columnist, and now take place without the master's presence (he is 91). During four days of talks and tricks, the oldest puzzles mixed freely with the newest."" -Edward Rothstein, The New York Times , April 2006
""This is a fascinating book, truly in the spirit of Gardner's style and contains much that is new ... I highly recommend it both for your own personal library and the school library."" -Ron Knott, The Mathematical Gazette, November 2006
""I highly recommend this book to anyone who already knows how truly fun it can be to do mathematics and also to those who have yet to discover it."" -Jacob McMillen, Emory University, Math Horizons, February 2008
""Tribute to a Mathematician is a 'must' for dedicated puzzle enthusiasts, mathematicians, and gaming enthusiasts of all kinds and categories!"" -Willis M. Buhle, Reviewer's Bookwatch, March 2005
""This is a very worthy book for those who enjoy mathematical recreations, magic tricks, and puzzles."" -Zentralblatt MATH, February 2009"
