"These are extraordinary poems of daily life, intensely felt and spoken. The poet speaking here is 'the balancing fire...centered so close to home/rising without yeast, accelerating without an engine.' All this in a river of charged language and amazing imagery. Dan Raphael is one of our most enduring, unique, and authentic poets, a poet with a truly universal and protean conception of things...In this collection he's at the top of his form." -- John M. Bennett, Editor of Lost and Found Times
Overheard at a Dan Raphael reading:
She: "Do you think he's ever taken acid?"
He: "Taken it!? I think he wears a patch."
"To some extent, I see myself as a medium for the energy and knowledge inherent in language; but to a similar extent I see my limitations as a medium, my own convoluted psyche , as well as a strong concern and deep consternation for the current status of the world we live in that language itself may not share." -- Dan Raphael

"Here we find no versified SF stories; none of Memmott's poems depict generically†typical SF situations. Instead, each poem weaves a language-pattern correspondent to a soul in crisis; here, intersecting and brilliant colored planes of discourse slide past one another in a (speculatively conceived) carnival of existential doubt." — Ignatz Mees, Science Fiction Eye
"In this collection the poet appears as a narrator of the fantastic in the ordinary — of the supremely strange in the apparent normalcy of life in our world... One cannot read these words without apprehending them as genuine ; nor can one understand the thoughts and messages framed by those words as being other than personal and unaffected."
— Mark Rich, The Magazine of Speculative Poetry
"Employing both crystalline imagery and meticulous craft, House on Fire showers us with such incandescent poems. Cast up by a firestorm of creativity, perhaps, but caught in that moment when the wind chases them across the dark heavens and they fall, each an omen, each an ember of personal mystery that flares before it dies. I found them revealing. Our blood's secrets can be read between Memmott's lines."
— Robert Frazier, Star*Line
