One name springs to mind when we think of classic suspense films: Alfred Hitchcock.

His silhouette is instantly recognisable as no one else has quite the same pouty lips and round, chubby face. The way he posed for photographs and his penchant for making cameo appearances in his films bear witness to his larger-than-life personality, but it was his ability to tell a spellbinding tale coupled with his technical brilliance that earned him the epithet of "Master of Suspense". His groundbreaking use of camera movement and the way he framed shots to maximise anxiety and fear place films like "Vertigo" among the very finest examples of creative achievement ever produced within the seventh art. In "Rear Window", he builds edge-of-your-seat tension by placing us in James Stewart's wheelchair and making us watch events unroll through his eyes, and the use of cutting-edge special effects in "The Birds" is almost as impressive as the fact that more than three thousand birds were trained for the film. What else do these three films mentioned have in common, along with "Psycho" and "Rebecca" and so many others? That's right...they were based on novels or short stories; the written word.

In A Hint of Hitchcock, we turn our attention back from the screen to the page, and bring you, the avid suspense reader, modern tales that chill and surprise, all inspired by the work of the master of suspense.

Imagine every character we have ever created is alive and well together in their own world. There is an economy of scale in which every Prince Charming is the same person, and every new story told about him just adds to his personality. Sometimes that compound effect can drive a character insane. Join Princess Sophia from Grimm’s “12 Dancing Princesses” as she is given a task by their gods to figure out what Prince Charming is up to and stop him from destroying their universe.
