I found "Tomita-Style Generalised LR Parsers", by Elizabeth Scott,
Adrian Johnstone, and Shamsa Sadaf Hussain.
It's from 12/2000, so there might be newer/better papers, but I found
this one pretty readable. (It doesn't retrace the original Earley
algorithm in detail though, so if your interest is more historical than
implementation-oriented, this may not be be right paper for you.)

Currently looking for a new job.
