Science Fiction Suspense At Its Best
Valkerie is tough, beautiful, and has an uncanny knack for survival. When NASA chooses her for the first mission to Mars, Valkerie is thrilled -- until she learns she's displacing America's heartthrob, celebrity astronaut Josh Bennett.
Bob, the ship's mechanic, is paid to be paranoid -- and he's good at it. After a teeth-rattling launch, Bob realizes that his paranoia hasn't prepared him for this trip. He can deal with a banged-up spaceship, but how's he going to survive the next five months with HER just a flimsy partition away?
Halfway to the Red Planet, an explosion leaves the four-member crew with only enough oxygen for one.
The pilot is left in a coma.
The mission commander is coming unglued.
All evidence points to sabotage -- and Valkerie and Bob are the obvious suspects.
About the Book
Oxygen is a witty, multi-award-winning roller coaster ride, with a plot that moves at the speed of light and enough geek romance to set your Bunsen burner ablaze.

About the Authors
Little is known for certain about John and Randy.
It's a matter of public record that they are award-winning science fiction suspense novelists, Ph.D. scientists, and serial entrepreneurs who have launched one crazy adventure after another for the past seventeen years.
Rumor has it that they prowl the night wearing steampunk battle gear to rid the streets of killer robots, little green men, and ducks that poop on your front lawn after it rains.
John and Randy deny all such allegations as "vicious exaggeration."
