(1915-1988) Welsh author who produced two sf novels remembered longer in Italy than in the UK. Dangerous Waters (1952) showed British World War Two heroes defending the realm against a new enemy from Under the Sea off Pembrokeshire, and was one of the better 1950s green-skinned-invader yarns (admittedly, the competition included Kathleen Lindsay's sf as by Nigel Mackenzie). Newbury in Orm (1952) is a loosely connected sequel.

Williams should not be confused with the later, Australian-based Islwyn Williams (1940-    ), author of Feral Fungus (2001). [DR]
