S. A. Griffin, co-editor of The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry and contributing writer for The Underground Guide to Los Angeles says of John Dorsey and Fall of the Ramen Empire:

"John Dorsey is simply one of the best wordslingers on the scene, a small press legend in the making. In his ghost world of the Ramen Empire, lovers pray to Godzilla under crumbling drive in signs for clean sheets as the moon shines down upon the beautiful madness that is John's poetry.”
