I've felt a bit daunted as I've dabbled into FP languages - it seems
to be a field where a lot of academic research occurs (perhaps due to
the lack of side effects?) and as I've had no CS formal education
(yet) I sometimes have trouble following what's happening in some of
the papers I read; ACM papers are a prime example.

Yes, that is a problem for me too. I have the feling that these languages have a lot of practical value, but is is hard to come by without the theoretical background. defmacro.rg is very valuable because it presents the thinking of FP in a language which is understandable for programmers in vonventional languages.
