Ian Williams is a fan and later pro from the UK. He was on the Tynecon 74 and Yorcon committees.

Long resident in Sunderland, he was one of the few major members of the Gannets never to relocate to London. Somewhat diminutive in stature, he was sometimes nicknamed "Goblin", and also claimed the title of "Gannetfather" as the group's longest-standing member.

His fanzines, especially his personalzines, had a reputation of being more intimate and breast-baring than was usual for UK fandom of the day.

Fanzines and Apazines:

His attempts to sell his novel Rider on a Stone Horse became something of a running joke in 1970s fandom; while it never saw professional print, his first novel, The Lies That Bind, finally appeared in 1989, while Transitory was published on Kindle in 2014.

In his day job, he was a librarian.
