From an email that just turned up in my Inbox:-

VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE GHOST STORY OF ALL TIME!

FantasyCon 2012 is giving you the opportunity to answer the question: What is the best ghost story of all time?

Just go to http://www.fantasycon2012.org/ghoststory.php, fill out the electronic form and submit it. No novels or novellas please, just short stories. One vote per person, and you cannot nominate your own work (otherwise your choice will not be counted).

We will then tabulate all the votes and the winning short story will be announced during a panel at the convention on the evening of Saturday, September 29th. A carefully selected group of experts will discuss their own favourite ghost stories and what it is that makes a classic spooky tale before acclaimed author RAMSEY CAMPBELL reads the winning entry as the clock strikes the Witching Hour of midnight!

This poll is open to EVERYONE – you do not have to be a member of the convention to vote. The more people who participate, the more representative the winner will be. So don’t delay – vote today!

This is your unique opportunity to choose for YOUR favourite ghost story of all time!

I reckon M.R. James will nail it, but I've got a real soft spot for Joe Hill's '20th Century Ghost'.

I think you're right about MRJ, Ray, and probably "Oh Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad!", but I've just been mightily impressed by the Lindqvist story in "A Book of Horrors", "The Music of Bengt Karlsson, Murderer".

Except the Lindqvist is a novella, and so not allowed. Oh, bother!

My vote went to the Joe Hill story, the audio version in particular is superbly done

Sounds great, I've not been to a Ramsey reading for years, maybe he'll slot in one of his beforehand.
