Still: ‘Still’ by S.L. Grey

The photograph: a row of pale green doors, with a board advertising a raffle half-visible behind one that’s open.

The story: a two-page piece by S.L. Grey (the collaborative pseudonym of Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg), set at a funfair. Fragmented dialogue contributes to a sense of unease, as we uncover the horror of the narrator’s predicament. Definitely a story that carries greater force than its length might suggest.
