Try this one:

  Dybvig, Eby, and Bruggeman. "Don't Stop the BIBOP: Flexible and Efficient
  Storage Management for Dynamically Typed Languages," Indiana University,
  March 1994.

Also, if you're playing with GCs, you'll probably want to read these also:

  Paul Wilson, "Uniprocessor Garbage Collection Techniques".
  [An extensive survey of garbage collection algorithms and variations.]

  David Gudeman, "Representing Type Information in Dynamically Typed
  Languages". [An extensive survey of object/pointer type/tag variations.]
