WEREWOLVES Dr. Crispin has engineered the saviors of mankind: Pavlov’s Dogs, a team of soldiers capable of transforming into fearsome beasts. But when Crispin and his team welcome a new talented neurotechnician to the island, Dr. Crispin quickly realizes his masterwork has fallen into the hands of a man he does not trust.

ZOMBIES Back on the mainland, Ken Bishop and his best friend Jorge get caught in a traffic jam on their way home from work. There’s a wreck up ahead. And something worse. The first sign of a major outbreak—and Ken and Jorge are stuck in the gridlock. They quickly realize they not only need to escape, but they also need to save as many people as possible on the way.

ARMAGEDDON Now Dr. Crispin and his team must make a terrible decision. Should they send the Dogs out into the zombie apocalypse to rescue survivors? Or should they listen to the new neurotechnician, who would have them hoard their resources and post the Dogs as island guards?


Pavlov's Dogs has it all. Genetically-engineered werewolves, hordes of flesh-eating zombies, and enough action to give you a heart attack. Grab this with both hands!” –Jonathan Maberry

“With Pavlov's Dogs, Brannan and Snell have staked their claim to survival horror’s top spot. Relentless in its pacing and violence, crazed in its inventiveness, spontaneous in its humor, Pavlov's Dogs is a horror adventure of the highest order... a masterwork. Prepare yourself, because Brannan and Snell are about to get your heart racing!” —Joe McKinney, author of Flesh Eaters
