The suspense makes the reader want to figure out what happens and not put the book down until they do. Another example of suspense is after Mark finishes a big job and has to execute the next part of his plan: “Get to the rover (the vehicle Mark uses to travel around Mars). Then I’m safe. If I run out of time before finding a suit, I’ll just run to the rover. I’ll be in trouble, but I’ll have time to think and materials to work with.
When suspense is created it can promote the imagery throughout the story. One example of the foreshadowing in “the veldt” is “Two screams. Two people screaming from downstairs. And then the roar of lions.” with “‘Those screams - they sound familiar.’” This kind of foreshadowing builds up suspense by having the leader guess what could happen next, and the reader will keep on reading to see if what they were thinking is what's going to
The use of foreshadowing and tone in Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery effectively establishes the suspense and a sense of dread in the story. The writer holds back on the revelation of what is happening for so long yet there are subtle uses of foreshadowing to prepare the reader. When the characters assemble in the town square for “the lottery”, it creates suspense as a lottery is usually a positive event.

There are many signs of tension throughout the story but they are all subtler than piles

The show Stranger Things is an excellent example of how to create suspense.
Falling statues presaging somebody’s death, terrible dreams which soon became reality... were an essential part of the Gothic novel. In detective fiction, a character may see a shadowy figure committing a crime against another one and explain to himself it was only a dream but in the end it turns out that the whole scene had been real (Harris 2008: 1). Omens, portents, and/or visions do also shape the works classified under these two genres: a character may have a disturbing dream, a vision, or some phenomenon may be seen as a portent of coming events. For example, if a statue falls off, it may forebode someone’s death. In detective fiction, a character might see something (a shadowy figure stabbing another one) and think that it was a
