Karmesin. Karmesin was created by Gerald Kersh and appeared in seventeen stories from 1936 to 1962, beginning with “Karmesin” (Evening Standard, May 9, 1936).

Karmesin is a Tall Tale Teller. Karmesin is, probably, the world’s greatest liar. But if his stories are to be believed–and possibly they should be–he is an exceptional Con Man and thief. If that is the case, he is both clever and meticulous in his preparations. He is an older man with a big mustache.
