Carl Sargent

Carl L. Sargent (born December 11 1952, in Caerleon, Monmouthshire) is a British author of several roleplaying game-based products and novels.

Body of work

Most of Sargent's role-playing works were published between 1987 and 1996. He has authored many products for both the "Dungeons & Dragons" (particularly for the "World of Greyhawk" campaign setting), "Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay", and FASA's "Shadowrun" and "Earthdawn" role-playing games (most of the latter in collaboration with Marc Gascoigne). He also authored various Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and novels, some under the pseudonym Keith Martin, and some Sonic the Hedgehog novels under the collective pseudonym Martin Adams (with Gascoigne and James Wallis). Sargent's sudden and abrupt 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.
