ELMORE, Ernest (Carpenter)
(1901-1957)
   UK actor and writer, author of about 30 detective novels as John Bude. In The Steel Grubs (1928) a Dartmoor convict finds some ALIEN eggs, which hatch into ferrophage grubs that eat first the iron bars of his cell and then much of First Industrial Revolution England. This Siren Song (1930) features some MCGUFFIN inventions. The Lumpton Gobbelings (1954), his most famous title, describes an invasion by Little People of the village of Lumpton, scandalizing the villagers.
