About Flight or Fright:
Flight or Fright
edited by Stephen King and Bev Vincent
Fasten your seatbelts for an anthology of turbulent tales curated by Stephen King and Bev Vincent. This exciting new anthology, perfect for airport or airplane reading, includes an original introduction and story notes for each story by Stephen King, along with brand new stories from Stephen King and Joe Hill.

About the Book:
Stephen King hates to fly.
Now he and co-editor 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, Dan Simmons, 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."
Book a flight with Cemetery Dance Publications for this terrifying new anthology that will have you thinking twice about how you want to reach your final destination.
Please Note:
Flight or Fright will also be available as an eBook from Cemetery Dance Publications, as an audiobook from Simon & Schuster Audio, and in the UK and related markets by Hodder & Stoughton!

It will be fine. Several days left and I posted a mock up pic (book is in shipment to me).

The winner of the auction wants a refund as they believe they received a "plain" book. I will of course give the refund, but I did advise them that Cemetery Dance is only doing hardback books, thus the paperback is THE advance copy (despite no markings on the cover). The back of the book does mention that any quotes etc. from book need to be sent to Cemetery Dance.

I can understand the possible confusion. I don't want anyone unhappy. I don't make any more or any less salary ($0 per annum), it just reduces the total by a bit.

Shame regarding the refund. Do you plan on holding another eBay auction for the proof again?
