Gamma-Ray Pulsar Bonanza Most of the pulsars we know about were detected through their radio emission; a few are known to pulse gamma rays but were first detected at other wavelengths (see the Perspective by Halpern). Using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope, Abdo et al. (p. 840, published online 2 July; see the cover) report the detection of 16 previously unknown pulsars based on their gamma-ray emission alone. Thirteen of these coincide with previously unidentified gamma-ray sources, solving… 
PARKES RADIO SEARCHES OF FERMI GAMMA-RAY SOURCES AND MILLISECOND PULSAR DISCOVERIES
In a search with the Parkes radio telescope of 56 unidentified Fermi-Large Area Telescope (LAT) gamma-ray sources, we have detected 11 millisecond pulsars (MSPs), 10 of them discoveries, of which

Gamma-Ray Pulsars Old and New
TLDR
Fermi has detected a steady glow of gamma rays from the globular star cluster 47 Tucanae, thought to harbor dozens of millisecond pulsars, and is discovering new pulsars whose existence was only conjectured.

Gamma-Ray Pulsar Revolution
Isolated neutron stars (INSs) were the first sources identified in the field of high-energy gamma-ray astronomy. In the 1970s, only two sources had been identified, the Crab and Vela pulsars.

A Population of Gamma-Ray Millisecond Pulsars Seen with the Fermi Large Area Telescope
TLDR
Fermi Large Area Telescope data is searched for pulsations from all known millisecond pulsars outside of stellar clusters, finding gamma-ray pulsations for eight of them, suggesting that they share the same basic emission mechanism with standard gamma-Ray pulsars.

We collate the evidence for rotation-powered neutron stars that are visible as X-ray sources and not as radio pulsars. To date, 10 objects have been proposed, and one, Geminga, has been confirmed as
