''high school English teacher who began to publish sf with ''Rhinestone Manifesto'' in Interzone #13, Autumn 1985. His first book, UNCLE OVID'S EXERCISE BOOK (1988), winner of the Fiction Collective Award, declared his capacity for formal inventiveness and his technical affinities for the literary avant garde. A native Texan, Webb was educated at the University of Texas at Austin, and has published three mystery novels (with, unsurprisingly, strong fantastical elements) as well as several books on contemporary occultism. Since 2002 he has also taught Science Fiction Writing for the UCLA Extension program. His sf criticism has appeared in The New York Review of Science Fiction and elsewhere. Webb is at his best at short story length, and has published sf, fantasy, and horror in all the major SF Magazines (save Analog), in many notable Anthologies, and in a variety of smaller magazines and journals (more than 400 stories to date)'' (Henry Wessells/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
