Eeks - Book 1 of The Eeks Trilogy

It's the ultimate breakthrough: a truly humanoid robot. Alarmed by the cost of caring for the aged, the UK Government funds development of robotic e-carers ('Eeks'). This works so well that no-one looks too closely at what the Eeks are doing on their own initiative - even when they promote euthanasia and colonizing a distant planet, that they will find.

About John Standingford

John was born in London, grew up on Merseyside and now lives in Adelaide, Australia. This is his wife Mary's home town, but they met and married in Bangladesh in the year of the first moon-landing. They now have two grown-up sons and two grandsons.
John's life has been spent mainly as an itinerant economist, working in most countries in the Asia-Pacific region and most of the former Soviet republics.
Now he is fulfilling a lifelong ambition to be a creative writer. His first work is The Eeks Trilogy, which uses science fiction to explore questions about Humanity's essential nature and likely future. His latest is HM4MEN - a light-hearted manual on household management for men.
He has completed a fourth novel called 'Bobby Shafter, set in 1950s Britain, for which a publisher is being sought. It's so good that he's part-way through writing a sequel.

About the Series: Goldiloxians (The Eeks Trilogy)
The Eeks Trilogy is for lovers of sci-fi that has as much to do with the social sciences as the physical ones. The three books (Eeks, Speeks and Squidgies) are still available individually, but now they can also be bought in one volume – Goldiloxians.

Robots designed to care for the elderly (e-Carers or Eeks) perform so well that they are modified and tasked with finding a planet in the Goldilocks Zone for colonization.

When Terra Nova 1 arrives to deliver its human cargo to Planet Goldilox, Captain Leonora Mendez finds her most difficult task to be creating a harmonious society, with a 4:1 sex ratio and human needs that have to be met.

Other challenges arise, especially when the first generation of Goldilox-born Humans reaches voting age. How adaptable can we be when our survival is at stake?
