A list of fifteen books that make up Gardner’s “canon”

I know I can’t be the only person who’d like to see this: a list of the fifteen books that make up Martin Gardner’s body of Scientific American columns.  I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d like the full set – I had a couple of the books when I was young and liked them quite a bit – but had been hampered by trying to find the whole list

The first four have been reissued by the MAA (the site I linked to, martin-gardner.com, has three, but The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions, the fourth book, has been rereleased very recently as Knots and Borromean Rings, Rep-Tiles, and Eight Queens: Martin Gardner’s Unexpected Hanging, part of the MAA’s series of rereleases.  I don’t know if they intend to get through the whole set; Gardner updated them with some new information, so what will happen after his death?
