- OLDMEADOW, Ernest (James Francis)
- (1867-1949)UK writer whose 1930s radio work sometimes verged on the fantastic, as in The Town To-Morrow: Five and Twenty Imaginary Broadcasts (coll 1937) as by Francis Downman. His sf novel, The North Sea Bubble: AFantasia (1906), set in 1910, spoofs the conventions of the future- WAR tale in a manner later amplified by P.G. WODEHOUSE in The Swoop (1909).JC
