LGBTQIA Studies. Editor Kyoo Lee describes QE3 as an anthology "focusing on the expressive diversity of English in transition. Fifty+ poets, writers, and scholars coming together here show, telegraphically, ways in which they creatively engage the world of dynamic 'Englishing' and its polyphonic futurity." Caroline Bergvall says in her Aferword, "Although this anthology is a literary poetic volume, written by a great many hands, it is built and seems to want to function like a grammar or a manual for the sociolinguistic study of a region with topical testimonies and local ethnographic samples provided."
