We present the discovery of 24 pulsars in 15 globular clusters (GCs) using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST). These include the first pulsar discoveries in M2, M10, and M14. Most of the new systems are either confirmed or likely members of binary systems. M53C and NGC 6517H and I are the only three pulsars confirmed to be isolated. M14A is a black widow pulsar with an orbital period of 5.5 hr and a minimum companion mass of 0.016 M ⊙. M14E is an eclipsing binary… Expand
