Monster

By A. Lee Martinez (Electronic Book, 2009)
Meet Monster. Meet Judy. Two humans who don't like each other much, but together must fight dragons, fire-breathing felines, trolls, Inuit walrus dogs, and a crazy cat lady - for the future of the universe.

Monster runs a pest control agency. He's overworked and has domestic troubles - like having the girlfriend from hell.

Judy works the night shift at the local Food Plus Mart. Not the most glamorous life, but Judy is happy. No one bothers her and if she has to spell things out for the night-manager every now and again, so be it.

But when Judy finds a Yeti in the freezer aisle eating all the Rocky Road, her life collides with Monster's in a rather alarming fashion. Because Monster doesn't catch raccoons; he catches the things that go bump in the night. Things like ogres, trolls, and dragons.

Oh, and his girlfriend from Hell? She actually is from Hell.

A. Lee Martinez was born in El Paso, Texas. At the age of eighteen, for no apparent reason, he started writing novels. Thirteen short years (and a little over a dozen manuscripts) later, his first novel, Gil's All Fright Diner, was published. His hobbies include juggling, games of all sorts, and astral projecting. Also, he likes to sing along with the radio when he's in the car by himself. For more information on the author, check out www.aleemartinez.com
  • "Abundant, zany humor..." --- Publishers Weekly

    "Something Evil (with a capital E) is stalking Gil's All Fright Diner in Martinez's terrific debut... The fast-paced plot is full of memorable incidents..." --- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

     "Martinez's follow-up to Gil's All Fright Diner is as joyfully fast paced and funny.  In the Company of Ogres tweaks fantasy clich├ęs most excellently." --- Booklist
