A Sixpence in the Settee
A Sixpence in the Settee is a collection of thirty-two stories from master storyteller Frank Melling – each one posing a different question for the reader.
There’s something for everyone – from science fiction and fantasy to the realities of modern day life. Comedy and tragedy are represented in equal proportions.
Fantastic Bike Tests
and Incredible Motorcycling Stories
From riding the latest Retro bikes to throwing a leg over the legendary eight cylinder Moto Guzzi GP racer or being there the day the gates were closed at BSA, Melling has always had a knack of being at the very centre of the action.
Now he’s telling those tales – and many more – in 17 beautifully illustrated chapters running to 132, A4 pages.
It’s a publication you just won’t want to put down.
THE PENGUIN CHRONICLES
A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest
A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest is far more than a story about motorcycling and journalism. Instead, it recounts the inspirational journey of a sixteen year old who left his Council House to become a shelf painter and went on to be one of the most prolific motorcycling journalists of his generation with over 1500 articles and 18 books to his name.

The first part of Frank Melling’s autobiography, “A Penguin in a Sparrow’s Nest”, proved to be an outstanding commercial and critical success with world-wide sales.
In “The Flying Penguin”, the second part of his memoirs, Frank goes from 1985 until the present day following the same style of ripping, “Boys Own” yarns which take the reader personally through a remarkable and highly eventful life.
