(???? – )

William “Bill” Venable, a Pennsylvania fan, was most active in the 1950s. He was President of the N3F in 1953, and part of Fanvariety Enterprises. He also wrote a few stories for the SF pulp magazines. With Jack Harness, he wrote and directed The Demolished Null-A and Now You Don't in 1952. He was likely related to Bea Venable, who appeared in it.

Gafia Poetry Leaflet Series #5 was devoted to a poem of his.

He was a fanartist, too; Harlan Ellison called him a “true ‘craftsman’ of the field” of fanzine art in Sol IX.

Venable used the Pendulum Press publishing house name.
