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?
