Carl L. Sargent (born December 11, 1952, in Caerleon, Monmouthshire) is a British game designer and author.

Most of Sargent's role-playing works were published between 1987 and 1996. He has authored many products for Dungeons & Dragons, particularly for the World of Greyhawk campaign setting.

Sargent also worked on the role-playing game Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, as well as Shadowrun and Earthdawn for FASA. 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.

Sargent was 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.

Sargent's sudden and abrupt departure from the gaming industry in the late 1990s was the subject of much speculation and curiosity among fans. However, according to fellow designer Sean K Reynolds, Sargent is unable to work due to injuries suffered in a serious car accident.[1]
