    The intro for this 17 turbulent tales is written by Steve King in which he reveals how much he hates flying. I can relate to that. So I was really looking forward to read this collection and be scared by some of the stories. Most barely did but I still appreciated the effort. I wasn't ...

    I hate to fly (HATE). I am the textbook white-knuckle flyer who really believes gripping the seat rests and concentrating really hard is what keeps the plane from plummeting 40,000 feet straight into the ground or ocean (or into the side of a mountain). It hasn't gotten easier over the...

    I received a free e-copy of Flight or Fright by Stephen King from NetGalley for my honest review. A very intense and interesting collection of 17 short stories. Each story is by a different author (one being Stephen King and another Joe Hill) and the book was edited by Stephen King ...

    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars. I read my first Stephen King novel at age 8--Pet Sematary. To this day, I still love that book. I've read it probably 50 times, at least. In 5th grade, I saw my teacher reading It while on break. I asked her about it, and she agreed to read an exce...

    I listened to the unabridged audiobook. I have to thank my library and Overdrive for saving me some cash, especially since too many of the stories here were a little meh for my liking. This anthology features stories about the fear of flying and the terrible things the imagination a...

    I am not a good flier. I flew to FL for spring break a few months after 9/11, and there were armed guardsman all over our tiny airport. Ever since then, I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach starting the night before we leave that doesn?t abate until after we land. Yes, I kno...

    From passengers and cargo, to unexpected and unwanted visitors on a plane, to Zombies or a Gremlin, and a plane flying through something comparable to The Stand setting, all the mystery, terror, and the supernatural at 20000 feet to 34000 feet and decreasing. There is splendid readi...

    Don't read this if you are getting ready to fly! This is a group of gripping horror and thriller stories involving airplanes in some manner. There are stories from familiar authors like Ray Bradbury, Arthur Conan Doyle, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, Joe Hill and authors I wasn't familiar w...

    There is a certain majestic nature to being far above the clouds, crossing the country or an ocean while receiving small bags of snacks and watered-down drinks. Air travel has long been the go-to means of getting from one place to another, especially with the ongoing technological adva...

    This book was interesting, but here is the nitty gritty, if you are a frequent flyer, I don't think it would be good idea to read this book on your flight. Actually I would advise against it as some of the stories within this book will make you wish that you hadn't read it and it might...

    I enjoyed this a lot. As in other anthologies some of the stories were great, some not as much but overall a solid lineup. I was sold as soon as I knew that King and Hill and new stories in it. They did not disappoint. ...

    mmm, not sure what to say about this one. I just presumed I would love it, but as we all know, going in with high expectations is usually a death knell. Plus I've recently read a couple of great King short story collections so the bar was set very high. My reasons for having these ...

    Welcome Aboard....or maybe not! It all begins with a scary as hell introduction from KING. Yikes! What a horrific flying experience he had. As for me, back in the olden days of 1969 on the way to Japan, we briefly stopped in Alaska and slid off the runway all the way to the fence. Ma...

    I enjoyed some of these stories such as Nightmare at 20,000 Feet by Richard Matheson, You Are Released by Joe Hill and Zombies On A Plane by Bev Vincent. The rest however were too middle of the road in terms of quality for me to rave about this short story collection. ...

    FLIGHT OR FRIGHT, edited by Stephen King and Bev Vincent (who also each contributed a story of their own), is an anthology of plane-horror stories. While I would say that most of these stories were above average, the only thing that disappointed me was that I had already read the major...

    3.5 Flight or Fright is a collection of horror/mystery short stories solely happening in midair. It is edited by Stephen King and also includes one of his short stories. My favorites were Two Minutes Forty-Five Seconds by Dan Simmons, You Are Released by Joe Hill and obviou...

    Flight or Fright is an assortment of flying-related horror / suspense / sci-fi short stories - and also one protracted poem - that never quite took off for me. < groan > Anyway, there were a few very good if not excellent selections that notably came from two different time perio...

    Stephen King is afraid of something that I?m not. He?s afraid of flying. Don?t get me wrong, I have a lot of funky little fears and phobias, it?s just that flying isn?t one of them. So I saw this new anthology, aptly titled, Flight or Fright and I saw it as a personal dare fr...

    Flight or Fright is an anthology of stories regarding air travel which is edited by Stephen King and Bev Vincent. First, let me thank Edelweiss, the publisher Simon & Schuster (Scribner), and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an ho...

    Looking for a reason to be afraid of flying? Yeah, neither was I, but I saw this at the airport bookstore and couldn?t resist. A mix of fresh and classic tales, you?ll find yourself glancing out at the wing, eying the flight attendant, and maybe a little hesitant to strike up a con...

    This collection was a bit of a mixed bag for me and I was left feeling a little disappointed. Some of the stories were phenomenal but some were also a huge snooze fest. One thing I will say, I was quite impressed by the variety in the stories. There really is a little bit of everything...

    Eh. Definitely not worth the $9.99 I paid for this. A new anthology edited by Stephen King though equals I have to read it though. There were some truly what the hell did I just read reactions to some of the short stories, and a few good grief this is boring. I only really enjoyed four...

    Once upon a time in a faraway decade there existed short story collections that would knock your socks off. If the book contained fourteen stories then at least eight of them would be considered decent and four of them would send you on a mission to find better fitting socks. Then one ...

    I haven't stepped foot on an airplane in 24 years following a very, very, very rough landing at KCI International during a storm. Those 10 minutes of silent, white knuckle terror ruined flying for me. I'm terrified to get on a plane. There isn't enough alcohol or happy pills to make a ...

    An excellent collection. All of the stories (and the poem) were highly enjoyable. I cried a little during You Are Released by Joe Hill (it was my favourite in this collection, which is saying something, because I loved the whole book), enjoyed Air Raid by John Varley so much that h...

    As my wife and I prepared for a trip to Italy, I was mainly focused on the sights, food, and wine we were about to experience. However, at some point, I realized I would be trapped in a metal tube for ten hours or so, to get to and from Rome. Being slightly masochistic, I decided it wo...
