A book that poses some odd questions


WITH 22 successful books to his name, three more currently in production – and world-wide sales – Frank Melling can claim to be one of Warrington’s most successful authors.
He doesn’t get back to town too often these days but he dropped in at a Makers Market in Palmyra Square recently to promote his latest book, “A Sixpence in the Settee.”
A collection of 32 short stories, many of which were inspired by Frank’s childhood in Warrington.
They are a mixed collection, with something for everyone from science fiction and fantasy to the realities of modern day life. Comedy and tragedy are represented in equal propotions.
Frank said: “I still consider Warrington as home, although it’s been a long time since I have been back to the town.
“Palmyra Square also holds fond memories for me from when I would sit in the gardens after a visit to the wonderful Warrington Library, which was the inspiration for all my subsequent writing.”
Some of the odd questions posed by the stories are:
Why should a sixpence in a battered old settee be so important?
What do seagulls think about tourists?
Do Health and Safety Regulations exist in Purgatory?
Is it possible to find love at a supermarket checkout till?
Can computers fall in love?
“A Sixpence in the Settee” costs £10 and is available, post and packing free, from www.frankmelling.com
