Praise for Mongrels and Misfits:

“Literary allusions and auditory illusions. Every song is a fresh delight.” — SF/fantasy author Jody Lynn Nye

"From the virtual desk of Deliah Moonraze, Music Historian, 2113:  The chords and the lyrics of Beth Waggoner Patterson are a matter of record, eight track tape, cassette, CD, and aural-implant, and as far as I'm concerned her sound was raw and from the heart, but any way you look at it, she was unique—the last of a rare breed to crawl out of a halo full of bootleg gin, who grabbed a Bouzouki guitar and made her Celtic Rock roar. By the truest measure of good old Nawlins, she was the ultimate Stage-Babe, and unlike her contemporaries, who ended up in diminutive house concerts or on a garage band floor on Valentine's Day, she beat the odds and lasted, a meat and potatoes crooner all the way, who for years was the undisputed vice lord of her own live venues. She was unique—and she was hot." —  Michael H. Hanson, poet/author, creator of the Sha'Daa series

“Music ... it’s all about hearing the undertones and the overtones, the inner tones and the inner meaning. Beth’s words, here displayed, are the rest of the music that we are sometimes too carried away by the sounds to really hear. Time to get out the CDs and listen to everything all over again with the lyrics to let the eye hear the music!” — Diana L. Paxson, author of The White Raven, the Chronicles of Westria, and the Avalon series (with Marion Zimmer Bradley)

“Beth’s many fans, who return again and again to watch her performances, have long known the depth of her words, musical talent, and wicked humor.  This songbook is a gem her fans have long awaited!” — Darlene Bolesny, Author of Morticai’s Luck and Sagril’s Tower
