Tim Krabbé (born April 13, 1943) is a Dutch journalist and novelist.

Krabbé was born in Amsterdam. His writing has appeared in most major periodicals in the Netherlands. He is best known to Dutch readers for his novel De Renner (The Rider), first published in 1978. English readers know him primarily for The Vanishing, the translation of his 1984 novel Het Gouden Ei (The Golden Egg), which was made into an acclaimed 1988 Dutch film (Krabbé wrote the script).

Also a former championship chess player, Krabbé is renowned for his writings on the subject and his chess website is superb. Tim once reportedly authored a chess puzzle which featured a rook castling verticly (see Castling), before this move was specifically disallowed.

He is the brother of actor Jeroen Krabbé, but a rift has separated the two, who now have little to do with each other. Tim´s nephew, Martin Krabbé, is also a Dutch media personality.
