 Macro Expansion "...And Then Things Started Getting Even Better"

I was looking through some wonderful notes titled "An introduction to
macro expansion algorithms" written by Peter S. Housel and found in
the Scheme repository.  There are 4 parts of what he says will be a 9
part paper.  The last section states

> 4.5 ...And Then Things Started Getting Even Better

> In the time between 1988 and 1992, several improved expansion
> algorithms were invented.  In the following sections, we will look at
> these algorithms, and then we will show how each of them can be used
> to implement the pattern language.

The notes are fun to read from both a technical and historical angle.
Unfortunately the notes drop off just when the plot is getting thick.
Can anyone recommend something else I can read to complete the picture
that Housel was painting?
