swodahS by J.E. Deegan

This was a very weird tale. It seems they're in some afterlife or parallel reality stacked right over ours? Sounds very intriguing, and enough was presented to give me some idea about the setting, but it was very strange, and feels like a fragment from a much larger story. None the less it contained great description and atmosphere, I had a good sense of the decay and abandoned feel of the overall setting. My only complaint was too much was given to relatively unimportant details, such as the how they were all strung up, which this space could have been given to give more of a sense of what was really going on.

The world described (Limboland) has been featured in other stories by Mr. Deegan... so the story is, in a sense, part of a larger work.
