The Way He Does It

John Klima over at Electric Velocipede has posted the complete text of Jeffrey Ford's World Fantasy Award nominated story "The Way He Does It". Check it out!

It’s a very good story, very curious. "The Way He Does It" is a fairly short story and the entire time I wondered what "It" was as Ford builds and builds until I'm about ready to scream "What the hell is it already?!!" We beg Ford for release, for the answer to what "It" is...and before the end of the story I realize that it doesn't matter what "It" is. Whatever "it" is will never match our imagination, whether we think it is an act of perversion or something else all together, it doesn't matter what "It" is. What matters is the way he tells it.
