He has been a regular contributor to Scientific American and is so respected by scientists, that he has had an asteroid (2587 - Gardner) named after him. His first non-magic and non-puzzle book, In the Name of Science (1952), began his exposure of cults, fads, and fallacies in the sciences. He also wrote Philosophical Foundations of Physics (1966), and a novel, The Flight of Peter Fromm (1973).
