Gregg Webb

After 16 years as a working magician, Gregg turned to illustrating, writing, and in some cases "ghost" writing technical magic.

Besides his own collections of his newsletters for magicians, he worked on the Tannen catalog, Tannen's Top Hat Topics, Sam Sharp's Mechanical Secrets, Genii Magazine, Richard Robinson's ALL MAGIC web site, David Roth's 3-Ball Trick lecture notes, two books for Doug Edwards, dust jackets and a few interior illustrations for Steve Minch's Hermetic Press, and he has helped build, sculpt, or decorate props for a number of working pros.

Gregg still invents magic, writes his newsletters, and occasionally still performs. His Zarrow Shuffle draws praise when seen from the right angle.

Only two poker chips are used - nothing extra is required. This trick is based on an original coin effect by Sol Stone, to whom this ebook is dedicated.

"Love the poker chip transposition. Easy to do and really practical -- it's a good example of why and when to use the Spellbound Change. This is a quick trick I'll use." - Ed Brown

Super Session #11: Casino Zarrow Shuffle and the Gardner-Marlo-Webb Poker Deal by Gregg Webb

Webb Mania by Gregg Webb

From the Foreword:

Magic is changing and a lot of the reason for this is that people's attention spans are shorter because of the pace of life today and more distractions.

We don't have the luxury of people dying for entertainment. There is too much entertainment and to compete, we have to get to the point quicker.

If you look at my magic a certain way, it is a direct result of chipping away at long tricks trying to distill them down.

The format follows Gregg's established style of illustrations and hand-lettered text.

"Gregg Webb has written an unvarnished, tell-it-like-it-is memoir of his life within and on the fringes of New York City's subculture of magic and magicians. If you want to know what it was like growing up for over half a century with David Roth, Charles Reynolds, Jeff McBride and other magic luminaries of New York, Gregg lays it all out, frankly, as he saw it." - Stephen Minch

"Gregg Webb is one of the Zen Masters of close up and parlor magic. He is a master of minimalism. His effects and streamlined thinking inspire me to do more with less!" - Jeff McBride, Las Vegas Headliner

Best of Feen-X by Gregg Webb

The title of this ebook is misleading. It is not a compilation of the best effects from Feen-X magazine, but rather a completely new 24 issue magazine Gregg Webb created from 2010 to 2012. Better think of it as a continuation of Feen-X. The name stems from the fact that Gregg does revisit some of the best plots and ideas from Feen-X, but not to repeat them, but to update and improve on them. And of course, there are also completely new ideas.

It is hard to categorize this ebook. Gregg's ideas span a big arch from close-up to stage, from cards, coins and other daily items, to mental magic, gaffs, gimmicks and...
