One of the SK books I read several years ago had a couple of paragraphs about how, for some reason, people end up not getting on airplanes that are going to crash. There were also references to other bad events that people somehow avoid.
I want to read that passage again, but I've tried and tried to remember which book it was in, and can't.
Re-reading all of them is not an option (big collection).
So can any of you die-hard fans point me in the right direction?
My knee-jerk reaction is that it was from The Langoliers but not 100% sure. Don't know if it's really true, but I'd first read about that phenomenon in The Ghosts of Flight 401 years before The Langoliers came out.
It was in 'The Stand', and was part of one Glen Bateman's rants about the nature of things. Sadly, it appears King made it up - no such research on the subject suggests such a phenomenon actually occurs.
The Stand had also been my thought but second-guessed it was the right title because I was thinking of the Blessing, UT story that was in The Stand and couldn't remember if they'd both been in the same one.
