Mason Williams, a.k.a. Tailsteak, is a Canadian {{webcomic}} author best known for ''[[OneOverZero 1/0]]'', an intensely metafictional story of creation, improvisational physics, philosophy, character development, and a RunningGag. Since the completion of that comic, he began publishing several other comics serialized on his personal website -- these have been mostly placed on hold with the start of ''Webcomic/LeftoverSoup''. He is also an author of straight fiction, including a short novel titled [[http://tailsteak.com/archive.php?num=513 bang: an apocalypse]], and of at least two role-playing systems.

He is married to Amber M. Williams née Panyko, the artist behind ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures''.
