Jonathan Janz ‘The Clearing of Travis Coble’ Review


Written by: Joe Hempel

The Clearing of Travis Coble is an exercise in excellence when it comes to short story telling.  Jonathan Janz manages yet again, to create believable, yet terrifying, characters, and stunning, yet terrifying locations.

Travis Coble was cleared by a jury of his peers 20 odd years ago, but the general public thought otherwise and ostracized him, much like Lizzie Borden.

A psychology professor decides to investigate further, and clear this man’s name once and for all.

Like any great horror story the interaction between the characters, and the tension set up through their actions and words drive this story.  You sometimes want Travis Coble to be guilty, you sometimes want him to be innocent, and this back and forth emotional see-saw is what drives this story forward.

In only 33 pages, you’ll run the gamut of hope, disappointment, fear, and excitement.  Only a skilled writer who truly has a grasp for his craft can do this in so few words.

It’s a 5 out of 5 stars from me, no question.

Grab it here.
