Tixe of Celedon: Science Fiction Novels by Naida E. Kirkpatrick

Tixe of Celedon: Science Fiction Novels by Naida E. Kirkpatrick Series Cover

These stories by Naida Kirkpatrick are a wonderful introduction to science fiction.

Celedon is a planet where people do not kill and where they know nothing of what is beyond their forests and mountains. They do know that there was a Beginning time, when the Earthlings came, leaving some high-tech equipment that proves to be useful. As the stories in the series progress, the fearless Tixe, her brother, and her friends have their eyes opened and their experiences widened with the aid of a newly arrived Earthling. But as time goes on, others begin to pollute the skies and make the planet uninhabitable.

Naida Kirkpatrick lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She graduated from Ball State University with a B.S. in education and later completed a degree in nursing from Purdue. She says: “The idea for the Celedon series grew gradually from little things—an exit sign, a small red-haired girl playing in the gym with her class—and then I set about putting them into another world. Eventually, I wanted to say something about cleaning up the footprint of environmental pollution that we as human beings are leaving on our surroundings.”
