A U.K. Tradition

Winners of the Ghost Story Competition

For whatever reason, it became tradition to compose one's ghost stories for around Christmas time.  Dickens has at least two Christmas stories with lots of ghosts.  Most of M. R. James's wonderfully moody stories were composed in and around the Christmas season; Henry James adopted the convention, and now we have the modern extension of it.  Read the shortlist in the Ghost Story Competition.
