    I had started this book previously but had to stop because I was not in the correct mind frame or Stephen King. I decided to use the audiobook the second time around and found it was much easier to understand, especially the older stories in this book. I tend to lose interest when tryi...

    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 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...

    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...

    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 ...

    Yeugh?some good stories but they're the minority here. Did y'all know it was Stephen King's 71st birthday recently? I almost avoided finding out because I muted his name and @StephenKing on Twitter. (But not on Facebook! Damn you, gushing horror friends! Legend has it that if you ...

    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...

    Reading a short story compilation always reminds me of the good ol' days when I used to buy old timey fun timey CDs from my favorite band. I disliked shelling out $15 bucks because there was a good chance I would only like 3 songs out of 12; if I was really lucky, I liked half. ...

    After having been somewhat disappointed in recently read anthologies, I was pleased to find this one to be quite good. It's really been some time since I've read a collection like this where all but one or two were not just perfectly fitting of the theme, but were all pretty enjoyable....

    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...

    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...

    Did love this one! Some of the stories were a little ?eh? but a lot of them were really good. Especially in the second half of the book! No surprise but Joe Hill, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, and Bev Vincent were fantastic! With a special nod to Peter Tremayne who I had heard of befor...

    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...

    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 ...

    Stephen King has spent his life frightening his readers, but what scares the world's best selling horror writer ? Flying it seems. So here, appropriatley, is a collection of short stories set around the world of flight. It's a mixed bag of quality, but there are some real gems to be f...

    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...

    3 stars This is not a bad book. I don't usually care for short stories as I feel that they don't carry enough character development. That being said, some of my favorite authors are in this book, so I thought I'd give it a try. There are some good stories, and some bad ones. I d...

    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...
