Always books. Never boring.

flight or frightWe’re pleased as punch to share this audiobook first-listen to Joe Hill’s story from Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the scary sh*t that can happen to you on a plane. Definitely don’t listen to this at the airport. Or do listen to it at the airport, if you’re that kinda reader. Take a look at a quote from Joe Hill and the synopsis below:

“When I’m at 30,000 feet and the PA comes on and I hear those words—”this is your Captain speaking”—I immediately imagine he’s about to complete his sentence by adding, “and we’re all about to die.” He’ll laugh maniacally, the PA will shriek with feedback, and the 777 will tilt forward into a sickening nosedive. This is diseased, I know…but maybe you have a touch of the same illness, and if you do, Flight or Fright is the book for you.” —Joe Hill

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.

Read by an all-star cast including Stephen King himself and featuring brand new stories from King and Joe Hill as well as classic tales from the likes of Ray Bradbury, Roald Dahl and Richard Matheson, Flight or Fright is a terrifying new anthology will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination.  As King says this collection is “ideal airplane reading, especially on stormy descents…Even if you are safe on the ground, you might want to buckle up nice and tight.”
