Carl L. Sargent (born December 11, 1952, in Caerleon, Monmouthshire) is a British author of several roleplaying game-based products and novels. Most of his role-playing works were published between 1987 and 1996. He has authored many products for the Dungeons & Dragons (particularly for the World of Greyhawk setting), Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Shadowrun roleplaying games. He also authored various Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and novels, some under the pseudonym Keith Martin. Sargent's departure from the gaming industry in the late 90s has been the subject of much speculation and curiosity among fans. According to fellow writer Sean K. Reynolds, Sargent is unable to work due to injuries suffered in a serious car accident.
Sargent is also noted for holding a PhD in psychology (or experimental parapsychology), which he earned in 1979. He is known to have performed numerous ganzfeld experiments at the University of Cambridge (a photograph of Sargent performing such an experiment appears in the Encyclopedia of Pseudoscience, page 129). His published works in this field include Explaining the Unexplained: Mysteries of the Paranormal, co-authored with Hans Eysenck.
