The Night Flier is a short story written by author Stephen King and revised for the 1993 short story collection Nightmares & Dreamscapes.
The story centers on Richard Dees, a deeply cynical reporter from a trashy supermarket tabloid called Inside View. Dees' current subject of investigation is the Night Flier, an apparent serial killer who travels between small airports in a Cessna Skymaster, gruesomely killing people in a way that leads Dees to think the man is a lunatic who believes himself to be a vampire.
