I tried to uncompress and upload a copy of the original Postscript version of the paper (http://people.csail.mit.edu/alan/ftp/pepm99.ps.gz) to scribd, but the result had a quite unreadable font.

Along with pg's writings, this paper is another description of how the synergy between Lisp code and quasiquotation makes it easy to do code generation such as macros.

The paper also has a nice explanation of how to nest quasiquote expressions.
