Flight or Fright Edited by King and Vincent

Posted: March 12, 2018, 18:11:02

This book has just been announced by Cemetery Dance (book) and Simon & Schuster (audio). Sounds like a really great collection with a new story by both King (The Turbulence Expert) and Joe Hill (You Are Released). The book will be released September 4 and here is all info about it.

By Stephen King and Bev Vincent
#1 New York Times bestselling author and master of horror Stephen King teams up with Bev Vincent to present a terrifying collection of short stories that tap into one of King’s greatest fears—air travel— featuring brand-new stories by King as well as Joe Hill, in addition to fourteen classic tales and one poem from the likes of Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl, and Dan Simmons.

Stephen King hates to fly.

Now he and coeditor Bev Vincent would like to share this fear of flying with you.

Welcome to Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the things that can go horribly wrong when you're suspended six miles in the air, hurtling through space at more than 500 mph and sealed up in a metal tube (like—gulp!—a coffin) with hundreds of strangers. All the ways your trip into the friendly skies can turn into a nightmare, including some we'll bet you've never thought of before… but now you will the next time you walk down the jetway and place your fate in the hands of a total stranger.

Featuring brand new stories by Joe Hill and Stephen King, as well as fourteen classic tales and one poem from the likes of Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl, and Dan Simmons, Flight or Fright is, as King says, “ideal airplane reading, especially on stormy descents... Even if you are safe on the ground, you might want to buckle up nice and tight.” This terrifying new anthology will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination.

Table of Contents:

—Introduction by Stephen King

—“The Horror of the Heights” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
—“Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” by Richard Matheson

Update On The US Edition Of Shining in the Dark

Section: Book » Shining In The Dark

Here is an update from Cemetary Dance on the US edition of Shining in the Dark:

The books are finished at the printer, but we discovered a major problem when they sent us the final approval copies: the printer completely missed printing and tipping in the interior artwork drawn by Erin S Wells. It's too late for them to fix this, so instead we¹ve created an exclusive chapbook of the artwork that will ship with your book. We think they'll make this special edition even more special!

Molly: The Inspiration To A Not-Yet-Published Story

Posted: March 8, 2018, 11:23:34

Apparently Molly has been the inspiration to one (not-yet-published) story about a dog that’s terrified of alligators.

We ask if Molly functions as a muse for the author. “She’s a-MUSEing. But she’s a pain in the ass when I’m writing. She wants to go out and play ball!” Still, Molly has inspired at least one (not-yet-published) Stephen King story about a dog that’s terrified of alligators.
