Carmody, Honest John. Honest John Carmody was created by E. Hoffmann Price (Pâwang Ali, Pierre d’Artois, Cliff Cragin, Don Cragston, Saul Epstein, Glenn Farrell, Simon Bolivar Grimes, Glenn Haley, Ishmeddin, Jim Kane, Matalaa, Average Parker, Dr. Zeng Tse-Lin) and appeared in at least fourteen stories in a variety of pulps from 1938 to 1953, beginning with “Honest John” (Private Detective Stories, May 1938).
