Chasing the Moon
This is just a typical story of a woman with a monster in her closet. Diana needs a place to live and she finds a place that's too good to be true. . . sort of. She is told by the strange landlord not to open the closet. When something in the closet begins speaking she opens it to find Vom the Hungering who eats everything in his path. Diana soon learns to control Vom and a couple other monsters she picks up on the way while gaining her own strange powers. The apartment building straddles two dimensions and is a haven of monsters. But one is intent on destroying the world and Diana must find a way to stop him. Essentially this is humorous, apocalyptic fiction with monsters. I like Martinez's books but, while amusing, this is not his best.
