#1 New York Times bestselling author and master of horror Stephen King teams up with Bev Vincent of Cemetery Dance to present a terrifying collection of sixteen short stories (and one poem) that tap into one of King’s greatest fears—air travel—featuring brand-new stories by King and Joe Hill, “an expertly compiled collection of tales that entertain and scare” (Booklist). Stephen King hates to fly, and he and co-editor Bev Vincent would like to share their 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. Here are 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 “standouts” (Publishers Weekly) 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, Dan Simmons, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and many others, 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.” Each story is introduced by Stephen King and all will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination.

This novel has its setting before, during, and after the American Civil War. Very little of the war is told but some of it is reflected to give emphasis to the lives of the people and to strengthen events and happenings. The whole nation as it existed in those times was ripped apart by this tragic and useless conflict. The North was visited with hardly any damage to its cities whereas the Southern cities were mostly demolished. But, loss of life, terrible injury, missing men, and imprisonment to both participants were unbelievable, indescribable, and heart rending. The flight as this book relates is due to Southern people, both soldiers and civilians, who are afraid for their lives and property. The long terrible war is nearly over, with the Confederacy having no chance at victory. General William Sherman, a revengeful and brutal union general begins has famous march to the sea. People are killed and property is put to the torch. Nothing escaped the fearful general so thousands of Southern people ran for their lives. The main characters are the Sidney Berry family. Living just South of Atlanta they flee to lower Georgia and settle there. Several other families also find the small town as a refuge. Berry was a very wealthy plantation owner whose cotton exports were the source of his riches. The place and the earth where all these families settled was not friendly to farming and they all barely existed. After several years of attempting to make it work, the whole group loaded their belongings in wagons and started to Kansas. Southern Kansas was good for the families. They were able to make ends meet, survive, and bring up their children. Other people came and a small community resulted. The war had come to a merciful end several years earlier, but the nation as a whole still had problems with their continued rebuilding, prejudice and simply hard times. Over time the original families drifted to other parts. A few moved back to their original home towns to recover what they could of their one time peaceful existence. The Berry family settled in Dodge city and stayed several years where Sidney bought and operated a sawmill. His family grew and married and went their own directions. As the Saga closes the Berrys are back near Atlanta and Sidney buys back his old plantation. Thing would never be the same but the family was content and most of his immediate family moved nearby. Sidney was the most influential individual from the beginning. At his death, he is mourned by scores of neighbors plus others he had befriended in other states. The family was back home now and even without the patriarch built new lives and continued to reach out to any person whose paths crossed their own.
